Hello SOHO community and friends! My name is Devan Whitaker and I am the newest addition to the SOHO staff, serving as the promotions intern this summer. I have worked with SOHO for two years now, previously with my student organization, Cardinal Communications, at Ball State University. I am so honored and excited to be joining you all with planning, fundraising and bringing hope to these wonderful children!
I will be working closely with Rachel Phillips to plan the upcoming Mile For A Child 5K Hope Run and Walk on October 7, 2012. This year we are blessed with more planning time, as well a committee of eight talented volunteer race coordinators!
Keep checking the SOHO website for updates on our planning as well as race day information! Our race registration page will be going live shortly and we encourage you to like us on Facebook at our Saving Orphans through Healthcare and Outreach page and follow us on Twitter @SOHOhelps!
I will be blogging weekly to update everyone on our race day planning progress as well as other exciting projects and initiatives we are working on!
In the meantime, dust off your running shoes, enjoy this beautiful weather we are having and start training for this year’s Mile For A Child 5K!
I leave you with one of my favorite inspirational quotes by Nelson Mandela, “Be the change you wish to see in the world!”
