Powered by Hope is excited welcome TobyMac as our inaugural Powered by Hope artist partner! Team TobyMac will join the larger Powered by Hope team at the Country Music Marathon & ½ on April 24, 2010 with team members from all across the country.
Here’s what TobyMac’s crew has to say about the team:
You all might remember last year in April when we asked you to take part in the “Run for Hope.” Thank you SO much to all of you who joined in to help raise over $5000!! TobyMac and his wife Amanda ran the half-marathon encouraged by your support as they ran through beautiful Nashvegas (what we like to call Nashville, Tenn).
Now we’re gearing up for this year’s run! We’re steppin’ it up. We want to invite you to come along and run with TobyMac! Just like last year, we are running to raise money for New Hope Academy, a multicultural school that is living out the beauty of diversity. But this year we’ll be representin’ as TEAM TOBYMAC aka ‘The Freakazoids’ (that’s right!). This is a great opportunity to get in shape AND support the cause of New Hope through tobyMac’s vision for diversity. Runners and walkers of ALL levels welcome!
**We are excited to announce the addition of a guest celebrity! Sean from NBC’s “The Biggest Loser” will also be running with TEAM TOBYMAC. You can read about Sean’s amazing transformation here.**

Questions? Please email Jess the web girl who will also be running, and will serve as the online training leader for TEAM TOBYMAC aka ‘The Freakazoids.’ She has never run more than three miles at a time, so this should be interesting.
