Mark Brockman (Crestwood, KY)
"I love to run because God has given me the opportunity. Eight years ago, I had a heart attack. God chose to spare my life and I know He has a purpose for me in serving Him. He allows me to run and it has given me not only a healthier lifestyle, but great chances to share the Good News along the way. Running is a great sport because it doesn’t take much talent. You just put one foot in front of the other. I can handle that. :) When I am training, I get to observe God’s creation in the outdoors and have time to take advantage of one-on-one time with my Holy Father. Being able to complete endurance events like marathons and duathalons is a real gift. I don’t take it for granted." Mark Brockman

"We met Jackie Perez on a mission trip in the Dominican Republic 3 years ago and are very touched by the work that is being done in the DR by GO Ministries. We decided to “Run for His Glory” to help support both Jackie and Alan Perez to further the kingdom of God. We are new parents to our son Elijah and have committed to getting back into shape. This is the perfect opportunity to do so.......looking forward to it." Brooke Vaughn
