RUN YOUR RACE MINISTRIES
April 12, 2011

Run Your Race Ministries is one of the key resoures I use in my work serving those in need in Prince Georges County, Maryland. The unemployed and the under employed in the surrounding communities of Hyattsville, Maryland are blessed to be served by Barbara Miller and her ministry Run Your Race. I have referred many of my clients to her and most of them come back to inform me that not only are they now working but Run Your Race is still assisting them in upgrading their skills as they set goals for more rewarding employment.

If I had to make changes in this organization, I would expand it's capacity to serve the surrounding communities by offering more computer classes, and upgrading the equipment. I realize that requires increased finances and hope to see the ministry grow in that area.
