Well, she did it! On an EXTREMELY hot and humid day, Ashley Ten Kate finished the 2009 NYC Half Marathon in 2:42:51, becoming the first female to dribble a race for Ball for Lives. No more excuses for you ladies out there–let’s get some more girls dribbling races! 16 of us went in with incredibly bright green shirts (made by our own Danny Mundo) to cheer her on. Check out the post-race celebration video-it’s a good one :)

Show Ash your support by giving her a 5-Star Rating on the video (upper left hand corner) and leaving a comment over at YouTube.

If you haven’t been following this journey, Ashely chose to dribble this race to rescue girls from child prostitution. Check out our last 3 posts to get involved.

    Thank you for inviting others to be part of what you guys are doing! It is awesome that because of Ashley racing, at least one girl will be spared from slavery. One girl will be given a chance not just to be alive, but to live. You guys are doing a wonderful thing! It is beautiful to see people showing God’s love to others and inviting people to join you, just like God invites us to join him in providing justice.

    God bless you all! I look forward to reading about more races :)
