Good morning Care Net Supporters!
After much prayer and discussion, the decision has been made to cancel the Human Race Waco this year.
We thank everyone for the support as we have enjoyed a great response to the event in previous years.
After securing sponsorships of $8000 this year, with only a third (35) of the racers we had compared to last year (119) at this time; we were facing expenses well around $14,000 to cover timing, shirts, park fees, food, and all involved in the race.
Last year, we grew to a final number of 219 racers exponentially during the final month, of which we are now in. Watching the numbers daily, we resolved that we would likely not come close to this number this year.
We want to always listen to God’s plan for us at Care Net and be the best stewards of the money and resources you, our generous donors provide.
So although the race will not continue as planned, your sponsorships have provided Care Net with a new opportunity! We are currently working on a “Mommy & Me Style Show and Bazaar,” featuring our clients, babies, and new moms in the community.
The bazaar will also feature local small business owners as vendors.
There will be more to come on this project!
Your humble servants, The Care Net Waco Family
