Why Shawn Hawk is Running 500 Miles...

"Three of my four kids went to Marmon Valley Ministries Summer Horse Camps at Marmon Valley Farm in Zanesfield, Ohio (about 45 SE of Lima). Our entire family feels blessed by the camp experience. 

Marmon Valley Ministries is a non-denominational 501(c)3 nonprofit summer camp ministry that is committed to providing wholesome farm fun for children of all ages, proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ and encouraging young people to walk in a Christ-like manner. 

To help raise money for the ministry's Summer Horse Camp Scholarship Fund, I'm entering the 2014 Midwest Grand Slam of Utrarunning Series...five 100 mile trail races between late April and early September. I finished my first 100 mile run (in 30 hours) last year at the Mohican Trail 100 Mile Run. 

I think Marmon Valley Ministries offers a unique summer camp experience for kids to have a lot of fun, investigate Christianity, grow spiritually and experience Christ through daily bible study & face-to-face interaction with other Christian youth.

The cost of one week of camp is $625. My goal is to raise at least that amount for each of the five races. Families who can't afford to send their son or daughter to camp can apply for a full or partial scholarship. Last summer 83 kids benefited from the scholarship fund. I'm running so at least one more kid can ride!

I'd like to ask you to make a donation today. If seven people give $100 ($1 for every mile I'll be running) I'll exceed my goal. If you can't give that much...any amount will be a blessing. All the money I raise goes to the MVM Summer Horse Camp Scholarship Fund.

I'll be posting video updates here on my training leading up to the first race, the Indiana Trail 100 Mile Run on April the 26-27th.

I hope you'll partner with me and help send deserving kids to summer horse camp. And please help spread the word about my adventure by using the social media tools at the top of this page. You can click to share it on Facebook, Twitter or Google+. You can also e-mail it or embed it on your website."
