chris.jpgHUNTSVILLE, AL — There are many amazing memories I have from a recent Kenya Relief church mission trip to Migori, Africa, but one of the neatest was holding a 5K run for 125 boys and girls 8,500 miles away. Talk about a long-distance run!

I had talked to my close friend and former newspaper buddy Curtis Coughlan, who is a Kenya Relief missionary in Migori with his wife, Devry, about putting on a 5K run for the kids who live at Brittany’s Home of Grace Orphanage and attend the Kenya Relief Academy. Curtis, like me, loved the idea because he and I have always enjoyed running to stay in shape. Going to Kenya, one of the world’s hotbeds for great long-distance runners, I figured it would be something the kids would enjoy doing.
