Ruby Tuesday ~ Start to Finish!

Time to visit Mary at Work of the Poet to join in on some Ruby Tuesday Fun!


On Saturday morning I arrived at the Crista Campus in Seattle to join with over a thousand people for a 5K fun run/walk to raise money and awareness about Human Trafficking. The “Free Them 5K” started on the campus and took us on a route through the neighborhoods surrounding the campus. Crista’s motto is “Loving God and Serving People”. There are 7 different ministries at Crista (maybe more) Our DIL is a part of World Concern Organization that works to relieve suffering around the world. They’ve had an ongoing ministry in Haiti and other impoverished areas. This walk was sponsored by World Concern.


Josh and his BIL ran the 5K. I joined my DIL’s mother and SIL to walk the 5K. Laura (my DIL) worked the event. We had a great time for a great cause.

The building in the first photo was designed by Daniel R. Huntington and built in 1913-14 as part of the Firland Tuberculosis Hospital. It is now used as an administration building.

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

  1. The building has such a classic look from the stone and Tudor facade and of course, the red slate roof. The runners/walkers have a wonderful outlook, putting their faith to work to such a worthy cause (trafficking is evil, taking such advantage of those in a desperate situation). So the participants, in ruby or not, are wonderful subjects for a wonderful post…

  2. What a meaningful event for your family. Well done, Ellen – “I must allow you to be a great walker”…. quoting Miss Bingley’s comment on Elizabeth Bennet! 😉


  3. What a busy week you’ve had! I enjoyed your blue mosaic and your walk, as well as your photos of your visit to family in California. I may need a rest after reading all that!

  4. Excellent!!! I’m not into running myself, but with my son being a marathon runner, I really appreciated your photo share this week.

    My Ruby Tuesday is posted…plus a joke [PG-13] today. Do come by for a visit, won’t you?!!


  5. Ellen, what a beautiful old building. Also, such a good cause to walk for.
    Human Trafficking, what a tragedy. Is human life not worth more? You are showing what a value lives are……way to go!

  6. That is a classic-looking building. They don’t make them like that any more, unfortunately.

    The runners and walkers were helping an important cause. Great post!
