Event Raises Awareness of LFC's Mission
in the Jesus
Run 2001 held on August 16th created a new opportunity the community
to learn more about our music and our mission. Although our decision
to participate came after the window of opportunity to raise money as
runners from across the nation had already made pledges to other non-profit
causes, we still benefited by obtaining exposure and playing our role
with our presence in the Christian event where we maintained a booth
at the conference center and at Clement Park near Columbine High School
where the event was topped off with a concert featuring national Christian
artists Anointed, The Katinas, and Rebecca St. James.
Chanda, a longtime LFC supporter who invited us to participate in
Café Estes at the 2001 Seminar in the Rockies, opened for Rebecca St.
James with a spirited performance of some of her songs from her recently
released CD, "Only Believe".
"It was a great chance to see some of my favorite Christian artists
while doing something much needed for our project and for the Columbine
community and beyond," says Nina Tamburello, daughter of founder Michael
Tamburello who is an avid St, James fan. LFC’s Aaron Delay was also
on hand at both of our booths to tour people through our websites from
a laptop. Board member Linda Arnold was also there to share her photos
and her experiences with Columbine and answer questions about our projects
Nina Tamburello and teen volunteer, Kayley Arvizu, also spent time at
our booths chatting and reaching out to other teens with their faith.
"It was really awesome to be a part of this event", says Nina,
a Rebecca St. James fan, "and to share a booth with Rebecca's people
was a real honor!"
We thank Rob Sigmon and his staff for making arrangements for getting
us on board at the eleventh hour with this great event. We believe it
is a wonderful
Christian outreach to our community and were proud to be a part of it
along with K-LOVE and their many other fine sponsors. As advertising
has already begun for the 2002 Jesus Run, we are reviewing the possibilities
for an even more fruitful participation.
