Hello Everyone! This will be my 6th Marathon. After I completed the Bayshore Marathon this year, I wanted to start running for a purpose. The previous 5 I have run for myself. I have spent a lot of time focused on myself and my family. It is time to pay it forward and give an orphan the chance to have a support system like I had growing up and still have today with my wife and kids. This marathon I will be running for the orphans and supporting Woodside's mission to continue to provide a safe environment for orphans throughout Asia.
Every child deserves a safe home. 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. Woodside Bible Church built the Thailand Orphanage, offering a safe and caring environment for orphans. Team Woodside partners with the Thailand Orphanage, helping to create fullness of life for children in need.
How Does It Work?
Team Woodside equips people to make a huge impact on 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. Team Woodside offers a fun and powerful way for people to tackle both. Members of Team Woodside do two things: train for the race and raise funds for orphans. Team Woodside provides training programs and resources, as well as a personal fundraising webpage to help. Team Woodside provides group training, offering team members a place to invite friends.
