Launching Road2Hope Special Project for 2014

Launching Road2Hope Special Project 2014
By Arlee Cripps

When approached by Esther Pauls, Hamilton Marathon Race Coordinator in early January with the interest in having Lawson Ministries own Paparella Innovated Art Program create 2000+ medals for the 1K, 5K and 10K races this year, I thought, what a great opportunity to showcase the talent of our artists and capabilities of the many clients we support.

A Little Background On Our Involvement

I have participated in the Hamilton Marathon Road2Hope event for a number of years prior to becoming an employee of Salvation Army Lawson Ministries. In 2012, I encouraged a group of dedicated staff to enter the race as a team, to raise money and awareness for our many programs, it was extremely successful! Last year, Lawson entered as a Community Partner, which allowed all staff, clients, and any members of the public to run in support of our organization. Each year, local charities have raised over $100,000 through the Road2Hope event.

I look forward to spending the next 21 weeks with everyone and I am excited to share our progress along the way. Please stay tune and follow our blog as we provide ongoing updates to the project, our accomplishments, thoughts and insights from our project team members, and any other excitement that happens along the way.
