5K to Mentoring

By Janie Woodward

I remember hearing about Young Lives and wanting to be involved in supporting this awesome ministry. The easiest way seemed to be in participating in the Thanksgiving Day 5K. After running in it a couple of times, I decided to run in it as well as volunteer on race day. It was a great way to meet some of the incredible people who support this branch of Young Life!

That created a thirst in me to get even more involved! So I decided to become a mentor. What a blessing to part of something bigger than myself! My journey as a mentor has just begun but I’ve already gotten to meet some amazing young moms! I am so thankful for this ministry, the young moms and their children, as well as the other mentors!
