  • A group of ladies and their children who attend Spring Hill United Methodist Church ran, walked, and strolled in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Texarkana which was held October 19. The race consisted of thousands of people who wanted to raise money for breast cancer research by garnering pledges of support for distances covered in individual and group efforts. The weather was windy and chilly, but despite that fact, the group, which ranged from 54 years old to 18 months old, participated. The group left Hope around 6 a. m. to get to the event. “I was really amazed at these young folks—leaving their warm beds, getting up and getting their young ones ready so early,” Chris Saunders, part of the group, said. “One of the participants from Spring Hill is a breast cancer survivor of eight years and is still going strong.” About a dozen children participated in the event and had a great time with their moms, according to Saunders. The course was three miles long and after the event, they all re-energized at a steakhouse in Texarkana. “I thank God for such a blessed morning,” Saunders said.
