Donte Lett, Lacy Wojt, and I are running to raise funds for the Akha House of Light Orphanage.
Twelve years ago Woodside Bible Church combined with the Akha House of Light to form an orphanage that would provide shelter, care, education, and reflect the love and hope of Jesus. The Woodside Runners joined in this vision to raise funds and awareness for the protection of these orphans, who would otherwise have been swept into the sex trafficking trade of Bangkok. Currently, over 70 children are nurtured in a safe and loving environment. However, the need is great to continue to expand and protect other children at risk and those already enslaved in the human trafficking trade.
Through this ministry we have raised over $300,000 for the orphans. This year our goal is to raise over $100,000 in combined funds towards this worthy cause. By supporting Woodside Runners, you will help protect the orphans. Thank you for your support! The race is Sunday, October 15th in downtown Detroit. Come and cheer us on! “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40
