At the Kentucky Derby on May 6, 3-year-old thoroughbred horses will race for 10 furlongs. Also on May 6, people will come together worldwide to walk or run 30 furlongs — three Kentucky Derbies — for clean water.
Which race will you be part of on May 6?
May 6 is the first Saturday in May. It is a huge day. I grew up in Louisville, Kentucky, and those of us from the Bluegrass State know the first Saturday in May as “The Fastest 2 Minutes in Sports” or the “Run for the Roses.” The first Saturday in May is when the world’s best 3-year-old thoroughbred horses line up to run a mile and a quarter at the famous Kentucky Derby.

In late October of 2016, I had the privilege and opportunity to speak at World Vision’s weekly chapel. I have spoken hundreds of times in front of large crowds, but I was unusually nervous for this one. I have been a child sponsor with World Vision since 2003 and now work for iDisciple, a corporate partner to World Vision.
