God did an incredible work last Saturday at Relay 4Kids! Over $3000 was raised for 4Kids of South Florida, a Christian foster care agency. At the high point we had over 300 people present. God held off the rain until about 2 p.m. and everyone had a great time. The faithful die hard stuck it out through about an hour of drizzling rain to finish the day with beautiful weather and a couple more bands. Former Dallas Cowboys lineman, Clay Shiver, gave a stirring message about walking with integrity and “Una Voce” from the Coram Deo Academy of Drama sang and danced to Disney Classics. We were also blessed by 4 Christian Bands: Ignite (from Boca Raton Christian School), Amplify (from Boca Raton Community Church), Above the Fire, and the debut of Anderson (made up of members from Calvary West Boca).
Thanks to all of the churches that participated: Calvary West Boca, Calvary Chapel Delray Beach, Wellspring Community Church, First Boynton, First Baptist of Boca Raton, Buenas Noticias de Fe, and Solid Rock Church.
Also, thanks to our sponsors and supporters: Hot Shots Paintball, Marriott, Boca Raton Christian School, Boca Raton Tennis Center, Massage Envy, Rita’s Italian Ice and Domino’s Pizza of Mission Bay, Blue and Gold Pool Service, Eternal Designs, Kim Harden and Realty Associates, Utopia Bagels, V Nails, Ruben’s Barber Shop, Miller’s Alehouse, Fingers Faces and Toes, Carvel, Busy Body Fitness, Church by the Glades, All State Management Group and Golfsmith Golf and Tennis.
Thanks also to the representatives from 4Kids of South Florida that explained the huge need for more foster parents in South Florida and the many great things they do to help kids. We were blessed and encouraged by testimonies of foster parents each hour of the day and saw the life change that had taken place in those families.
