BENEFITING: YOUTH FOR CHRIST INTERNATIONAL MINISTRIES
EVENT DATE: Apr 01, 2016
There are about 1.6 million Syrian refugees in Lebanon! Youth For Christ is making a difference by providing HOPE for refugee youth living in the tent camps near the border and the slums of Beirut. They are helping meet not only their physical needs but also their social, spiritual and emotional needs. We are running the 200 mile Ragnar Relay Race in Southern CA to raise money for their amazing work! We also run to show solidarity with those who are suffering. We will give up the comfort of our homes and beds for a night while refugees have given up their homes and beds indefinitely. We will safely take turns traveling 200 miles while they have travelled many dangerous miles -fleeing for their lives and leaving everything behind. We will cross a finish line and be able to return home. They don’t know where the finish line is or if they will ever go home. We're running to show in a very small way that we care and we are with them. Please join us in making a difference in what is probably the greatest humanitarian crisis of our time. Together let's bring HOPE to the refugees!!
