THE STORY:

65 million people are displaced due to carnage and war in their homelands. We cannot content ourselves by turning a blind eye to them, our human brothers and sisters, made in the image of God. Jesus tells us that as we do to the "least of these" we do to Him (Matthew 25:40). For years I have prayed for a door to open to provide assistance to refugees. Last year we collected 100 blankets and signed a petition to get greater support and that was a good start. But I felt I could do more. This year I am going to run and bike 2,175 miles. Why that distance? That is the distance Syrian refugees seeking protection travel from Syria to Germany, mostly by foot. I am also setting a goal to raise one dollar per mile. If you have heard the hearts of the millions in need of safety and most importantly peace and are looking for a way to contribute to the solution I ask that you make a gift through this campaign. I will be updating on my journey and progress through social media using the hashtag #runforrefugees and #bikeforrefugees. Thank you for your consideration and may God's peace bless you!
