Worries That Can’t Compare
Posted 03/14/2011 by Childhelp
Jennifer Pinner is a Childhelp supporter, Isagenix employee, and marathon runner. Her “ultimate dream” of running in the Boston Marathon will finally come true on April 18th as she competes on behalf of the abused and neglected children of Childhelp. Jennifer recently announced her intention to run the marathon on behalf of Childhelp and hopes to raise $5,000 for our cause before competing.
Jennifer recently documented her visit to the Childhelp Children’s Center of Arizona on her blog which follows her journey to competing in the biggest race of her life. She expresses the wave of emotions that come along with visiting a place that wouldn’t exist in a perfect world: the sadness as she entered, contentment as she noticed the personal touches that make the Center more inviting, and dismay as she visited the exam rooms where children are evaluated and evidence is collected.
Jennifer was hit hardest when she entered the room containing the “Worry Wall:”
Taped to one side of the room was "The Worry Wall," where children
are encouraged to write their biggest worry on a Post-It note
and tack it to the wall, leaving it there to defeat their fears.
“My step dad.”
“Being alone with a man.”
What are your worries? I know mine can’t compare.
