Edgemont South Stake Young Women's Run to the Temple

What a great idea! 200 young women from our church ran/walked 1.7 miles from the high school to the Provo temple! They all had pink shirts from their summer camp and it was a terrific visual of a personal goal--to strive for an eternal family starting with the temple.
These girls did more running that walking!
Kenzie has a cold so she did all walking.  Kian and I left  from our house to meet them at the finish line!
She was a little sarcastic about her excitement!
Mackenzie and the temple

                                                    Everyone who finished got a medal. Thank you Elizabeth!

 The front has a picture of the Young Women's medallion and the date. On the back is a quote from Ezra Taft Benson: "God loves us. He is watching us. He wants us to succeed. We will know some day that He has not left one thing undone for the eternal welfare of each of us. If we only knew it, heavenly hosts are pulling for us, friends in heaven that we cannot now remember, who yearn for our victory."

Happy finishers!! Even Kian got a medal, thanks Debbie!
Yay! We made it! We even walked back home, everyone else drove :-)
