Amy Compston, a 29-year-old mother of four, happily married wife and fulltime nurse in Ashland, Kentucky, has been running most of her life.
She runs for fun, for exercise, for fulfillment.
Some of that time, she admits, Amy was running away from God – she has had trials like every Christian. But her heart and life have changed and in a big way. She is now running for God, using the gift that He provided her to bring light to the world in any way she can.
Amy recently was among the top 15 percent of female finishers at the 2013 Boston Marathon, where her she and her family passed out more than 1,200 Bible tracts during the tragedy-marred event.
Some have asked where was God during this tragedy? But Amy knows where He was at because she saw Him at work during those dark days after the race.
Amy is asking her friends and anyone else who comes across this website to pray about what God may want them to give in her quest to assist the Penne Paris Nursery Schools in Moyo, Uganda. You can be involved by pledging something for every mile that Amy completes in the Ultra Marathon. For example, a pledge of 50 cents a mile would mean a $25 donation to UCE – and every penny will go to the schools.
