The race marked out for us

Some very special kids enjoyed a celebration in their honor this past Saturday morning.

BACH 5

 

The 34th annual BACH Roll ‘n Stroll brought together VIPs from all around Brazoria County:

BACH ECI staff and volunteers …

BACH 2

 

puppeteers …

BACH 3

 

and a friendly cow with questionable spelling skills.

BACH 4

 

Roll ‘n Stroll teams took their positions …

BACH 6

 

… and the Danbury High School band led the parade around and around Brazos Mall.

BACH 1

 

Costumed rollers and strollers of all ages were in on the party …

BACH 8BACH 8bBACH 8c

 

… but only the quickest ones got to collect gum and candy scattered along the parade route.

BACH 7

 

Former BACH kids mingled with parents, grandparents and enthusiastic supporters.

BACH 9

 

Finally it was time for the Big Event: running to attain their personal best.  With some last-minute coaching and lots of cheering, they were off!

BACH 11

 

From the starting line to the turn-around and back to the finish line, each completed race was a heroic accomplishment.

BACH 12

 

A hug before send-off, a focused run, and a congratulatory kiss at the end.

BACH 10

 

Some cheerleaders found creative methods of getting their runners to the finish line …

BACH 14

 

… while some races called for a team approach to achieve victory.

BACH 17

 

There were some real characters in the crowd …

BACH 13

 

… including these four colorful ones.

BACH 16

 

It all added up to a reward better than any gold medal:  lots of beaming, beautiful BACH faces.

BACH 15

 

Well done, everyone!  See you next year!

 

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses,

let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles.

And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

Hebrews 12:1
