Woodside Runners, a team of both new and experienced runners and walkers, are committed to take part in the races of the 2015 Detroit Free Press/Talmer Bank Marathon in order to raise funds to provide food, shelter, and education for orphan children in Thailand.
I have recently began training for my first half marathon with my church Woodside Bible. I'm so greatful that God lead my family and I to a church that is on misson to reach not only metro Detroit but the whole world for Christ. I will be running to support the Akha House of Light orphanage in Thailand. The orphanage provides food, shelter, a opportunity to know Christ, and so much more. The orphanage is a refuge for children who are victims of human trafficing and abuse. After seeing the children and hearing how God worked in their lives I felt a calling to do something. My goal is to raise money to support the orphanage and the children. I would be so greatful for your donation as well as your prayers.
