Ezekiel and his mom Rachael race to the finish line in a 5K color dash in Saint Peter, Minnesota, in June, 2013. The event was organized by “Livestock,” a non-profit music festival, founded by Jill and Alex Hass, to provide animals through World Vision’s Gift Catalog. “This was our first color dash,” says Rachel. “The picture captures his attitude toward life.” She added that “Loving others and helping them is central to our goal to further Christ's Kingdom by showing love.
