JEH JEH LIVE - The Krispy Kreme Doughnut Dash is a non-profit event presented by Brown Mackie College - Birmingham and Pepsi benefiting Children's of Alabama.

Runners will start near Children's Hospital in downtown Birmingham, run two miles to Railroad Park where they will eat a dozen doughnuts, then run back along the same route and finish back at the hospital. Not up for eating a dozen doughnuts? No problem. Runners may register in the Casual Runner division and eat one, none, or some doughnuts, and take the rest home to enjoy.

MOM'S DAY OF PRAYER - Mom's Day of Prayer was founded by Kathy Coleman in Arkansas after she read an article about some moms in Brazil getting together to pray for the children in their city...a city that was full of drugs. The first MDOP was in 1998. This year, there will be a MDOP in all 50 states as well as several other islands and countries. The local event will be at Freedom Ministries located at 6245 Eastern Valley Road in McCalla, next door to McAdory Elementary School. The event will be from 9AM-1PM. Everyone is invited to join in prayer. Feel free to bring your child, grandchild, student, or even their picture or name. This is the second year for the event in Alabama and the group that hosts it hears of great results from those prayers. The founder of MDOP will hold an event on the grounds of the Capital in Washington, DC at the same time that Alabama's group holds it event. For more information, visit http://www.momsdayofprayer.com
