Wow, the run is complete! All 315 miles of it! Pushing through the pain, Barry posted a great showing today. This seems incredible in light of the fact he just finished 11 marathons and yesterday ascended one of the tallest mountains in Haiti. Beth McHoul, the current maternity center director, ran the final miles with Barry and together they broke the finish line tape in an emotional ending. The stopping location was on a beautiful beach outside Cap Haitien. Haiti has an idyllic side to it few know exist. Later, the team had a celebration lunch at a local restaurant which served fantastic seafood (and fantastic cheeseburgers)! In contrast, this final nights accommodations are a bit on the Spartan side. While tomorrow everyone will split ways, there is still much work that needs to be done in the fight for improving maternal healthcare in Haiti.
Barry and the team do want to thank everyone for the prayer support lifted up throughout this event. God answers prayer! We stand back and thank the Lord for the safety provided, the physical strength given, the money raised thus far, and the privilege of being apart of His work. Thanks again!
