Every mile will challenge you, build community, and raise money to bring life-changing clean water to communities in Africa.

In 2017, we partnered with World Vision and raised $43,000 (thanks to Ren Cares’ one-time match) which meant clean water for more than 800 people with 18 runners and walkers. For those that were involved in 2017, whether you ran, contributed financially, or helped logistically, thank you. What you did truly is making a difference.

This year, our goal is at least 50 runners on our team and we are hoping to raise $50,000. Join us! Our leaders have the time, training plans, and support to get you from your couch to the finish line on October 20th. Our team is made up of all shapes, all sizes, all ages, all abilities! And for the small number of you that really can’t run due to injury or illness, you can still be a part of this team through many supporting roles.

And if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday. Isaiah 58:10
