“Huff and Puff Before You Stuff” Fun Run/Walk
On Thanksgiving Day 2011, Matt Hershey and his family put on their 2nd annual 1 mile family fun run/walk. The event, which they call “Huff and Puff Before You Stuff,” was held in Lebanon, Pennsylvania. It started with 42 participants the first year and grew to 110 participants the second year. Overall, the groups raised a combined total of over $2,000 for Sweet Sleep, and according to Matt, this shows how “these folks truly want to be about God’s Kingdom work, even on a day when many have lots of other family events planned. We have seen friends bring friends, people posting it on Facebook and sending out email blasts, etc. There is no doubt that people want to be a part of something that really matters in His Kingdom. Even when people can’t attend they send in money.”
Matt says he and his wife heard about Sweet Sleep through a friend they attended seminary with who is an international orphan advocate. He and his family are delighted to support Sweet Sleep because not only do they have a heart for orphans, but they are actually in the process of adopting their own child.
