Special Guest for Race Day
One of our benefiting orphanages, The Children's Home of Hope (in Ghana), will have their founder joining us and will sound the horn to start the race. Elvis has an amazing story. He was orphaned at 6 yrs old and was able to make his way through school because he would show up at his friends house for dinner, help with their homework and do homework with them, as he couldn’t afford the books on his own. He was given a job in the town to teach about AIDS, saw many children orphaned, and he found a house for these children, paid someone to stay with the children, and this is how the home was founded.
