Renaissance Church completed our training season for the 2019 Team World Vision group. We participated in the October 19 half marathon in Brooklyn to raise money for clean water and hope in Africa. We exceeded our goal! Thanks for your generosity! More than 2,220 people’s lives are changed forever because of the more than $111,000 raised.
Just $50 brings clean water to one person in Africa. Support our team to make a difference! (To support a specific runner, find them in the Roster. And yes, many companies will match your donation!)
In 2017, we partnered with World Vision (the largest non-governmental provider of clean water in the world) 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. In 2018, our team of 50 runners and walkers raised more than $72,000, bringing water to more than 1,440 people in Africa. Our 2019 goal was to change more than 1,500 lives with 75 runners, walkers, and helpers on our team, raising more than $75,000.
For those that were involved in 2017, 2018, or 2019 whether you ran, contributed financially, or helped logistically, thank you. What you did truly is making a difference.
