  • Post-race thoughts on Fort4Fitness
    The air was cool and a chill traveled up my bare legs as I took that step out the door. A pit was in my stomach, churning. I sauntered to the starting point, giving my GPS watch time to find a satellite.

    "There was a witch, in Williams-Woodland," my husband said. "Don't you remember her?" My reply was a blank stare.

Double Shot: More Than A Hot Meal Video

Shooter's Comments:

My More Than A Hot Meal video is a testimony by Gary Chester, whose life took a turn for the better when he came to the Rescue Mission for a hot meal. The Rescue Mission hosted a tour and learn event on Wednesday as part of National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week.

I went for a look behind the scenes and found Gary, who told about how the Rescue Mission saved his life. We tend to think about the Rescue Mission as a place where one can go for a hot meal, but the Rescue Mission does a lot more.

Gary is one of the many who the Rescue Mission has helped with Restoration House, their short and long term residential program. This program meets the spiritual, emotional, physical and educational needs of men facing a homeless crisis.
