The Labor of Love Race was a success, it was a BEAUTIFUL celebration of Honduras and a wonderful victory for the Micah Project. Over 350 people participated in the race, where MICAH gave away over 50 prizes. In all, it was a HUGE success, even the weather mostly cooperated after Isaac rolled through that weekend.
In particular, the two pieces of pottery that Hondurasarts donated were quite popular and the large vase filled a WHOLE PAGE of silent auction bidding! Jeanette took a picture of the happy winner of the vase and you can see from the expression on her face, that she will treasure it and give it a good home.
In addition, 2 of the Micah graduates were at the race with the director of the house, Michael Miller. One of the graduates actually won a medal! It was so exciting to see everything come together just as planned. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
Hondurasarts.com is proud to have been a part of such a wonderful event. Truly, there was A LOT of love for Honduras at the race, and we hope to do it again next year– at this point, I think it is probable that there will be a second Labor of Love!
