Downtown for Good – Making a Difference – Beth Blackman

Beth Blackman is not one to sit back and wait for things to get better, she actively participates in the change she desires to see. This year she is once again participating in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids’ cancer.

Below are Beth’s own words and a link to find ways you can partner with her in making a difference for children.

This September, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids’ cancer!

Why? Because right now, cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the United States. Over 15,700 children are diagnosed every year, and sadly, 38 children die of cancer every week.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

So I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support Children’s Cancer Research Fund to allow them to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.

Beth

I'm one of the pastors at First United Methodist Church in Lexington, Kentucky where I've served for the past thirteen years. The sub-title of this blog is "Grace is no accident" which happens to be the defining reality of my life. God's grace (gift) is the reason we have breath in our lungs and hope in our hearts.
