The crowning jewel of PENTDOUGCOST is my 50 mile run around Lake of The Isles, Lake Calhoun and Lake Harriet on my birthday, Tuesday, July 5 to raise money for the children of Anna Vitiello Orphanage in Guatemala.

My goal is to raise $5,000 to support the orphanage. You can see all the details of the run and my connection to the orphanage by following the link after you submit this form.

*PENTECOST: an Israelite festival meaning 50, referring to the 50 days after Passover when Moses received the 10 commandments.

The Christian celebration of Pentecost that tells of the spirit being on all the people took place at the celebration of this festival.

So, I am borrowing the 50 theme and the notion that the spirit of God is all for my Half-Century of life celebration.
