2017 Detroit Freeppress Full Marathon!
September 26, 2017
This year I'm excited to say I am running with Team Woodside again to help raise money to help orphans in Thailand. This will be my 4th full marathon with my usual goal of raising at least $1,000 to help others. Why Orphans? Over 2 million Akha people live in Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Southern China. Akha orphans are victims of the Southeast Asia sex slave trade. TeamWoodside partners with the Thailand Orphanage, offering a safe and caring environment for orphans. Every child deserves a safe home. The Thailand Orphanage helps to create fullness of life for children in need. How Does It Work? TeamWoodside equips people to make a huge impact on protecting orphans through endurance events, while inviting people into personal journeys of health, physical fitness, and community. Many people want to get in shape and do it for a cause, but don’t know where to start. TeamWoodside offers a fun and powerful way for people to tackle both. TeamWoodside members do two things: train for the race and raise funds for orphans. TeamWoodside provides training programs and resources, as well as a personal fundraising webpage to help. TeamWoodside provides group training, offering team members a place to invite friends and get involved in a healthy activity.
