The Missoula Pulse
LHC is kinda international but this Pulse Page is our page – it’s set aside for Zootown locals. Get involved in gigs, lend a hand, or send in your ideas for local fundraisers. We need all hands on deck to keep this Missoula movement going & growing. Orphaned and vulnerable kids here and around the world thank you for getting in the game.
“In loving memory of dad, grandpa, and great-grandpa – Grandpa Hogan.”
In our efforts to raise awareness and funds we like to create opportunities for people to connect with us locally. Every year we run as a team in the Missoula Marathon, and we usually put on at least 1-2 other events. Want to get involved? Here’s what’s happening right now.
Stephanie Fast is returning to Missoula!
We’re super excited to announce that international speaker & author Stephanie Fast will be coming back to Missoula to speak October 11th at MAC! Her message is one of hope and healing not only for the orphan, but for anyone who’s ever struggled with abandonment. We hope you’ll join us and invite someone you know who needs to hear her message.
This is what we’ve been up to. Check out our past fundraisers & events. Chances are good that we doin’ it again, so if you see something you’d like to help out with in the future, get in touch with us.
Missoula Marathon – 2015
We raised over $10,000 this year for adoption grants & sustainable business in Haiti for Homes of Hope!
LHC Auction & Food Fest – March 14, 2015
This time around, we went a little more casual at the Missoula fairgrounds and enjoyed a chili feed, dessert auction, raffles, games, live & silent auctions. Miss Montana Victoria Valentine was our emcee, and Brent Dodge shared his family’s adoption story. All money raised went to our Forever Family Fund.
Missoula Marathon – July 12-13, 2014
Marathon recap: 43 racers, 11 sponsors, & over $20,000 raised for the Forever Family Fund! We also ran an aid station along the route and enjoyed encouraging our own team mates and runners from all over the country.
Missoula Marathon – 2013
Our second annual marathon fundraiser was a blast! We raised over $14,000 for Phase 3 of our Haiti Project.
Get Loud – September 27, 2013
Year 2 was held at the Wilma theater again, and we had a great night of music with special guests including So Long September. Funds raised went to our Haiti Fund.
LHC Banquet – October 12, 2013
Last year was so much fun we did it again! We had a great dinner catered by All Events Catering, dessert auction, live, silent auction and raffle. We even had a Harley Davidson up for auction! All funds went to our Forever Family Fund to help lower the financial burden for adopting families.
Missoula Marathon – July 13-14, 2012
Team LHC got its start thanks to our good friends Dawn Post & Jennifer Johnson – both avid runners themselves – they realized we could invite others to participate in this cool community event & raise funds and awareness for LHC at the same time! We had full, half, 5k, kids and relay team members suit up and run together. Funds raised went to the first phase of our Haiti Project.
Love Has Come Banquet – October 13, 2012
Inspired by a father who lived the adoption miracle through his daughter’s adoption journey, the Love Has Come Banquet & Auction was a time of food, fun, and fund raising on behalf of adoptive families. Pastor Pierre from Port Au Prince shared his heart for orphans in Haiti and all proceeds went to the Forever Family Fund.
