TODAY, THEY WERE CHAMPIONS!
On July 4, 2010, 7
women from the Rockford
Rescue Mission’s Women’s Recovery Program finished the MELD 2 mile race!
Annie’s Locker continues work with The Rockford Rescue Mission, Women's
Life Recovery Program. For over 1 year, we enjoyed weekly
workouts with the women, hoping to encourage and educate them on health
and fitness. We believe that when a person is in good health, it can
improve all aspects of their life.

The Arnie Johnson 5K/10K race was an awesome experience, and one that provided good team building for those who participated. Terri Odell has been a great support and encouragement while we were training for the race. She donated a lot of time helping us to get ready. Her passion for physical fitness is an inspiration. First-time racer, Julie, found that the race was a good team building experience saying “Although race day was damp and rainy, everyone was warm and friendly.” Race participant, Chevette, met a new friend to enjoy her first race with who offered her much support and encouragement having a daughter who has faced some of the same challenges as Chevette. Zedvie found the camaraderie to be uplifting, especially during the last mile or so. “People came back to us to encourage us to the finish line saying, “Just one more mile, you’re almost there and they ran in with us!” Everyone who participated had the same response, “It was an awesome experience!”
