Hello Friends and Family!
The Detroit Marathon is approaching and I am running the 2015 half marathon with Team Woodside to support orphans in Thailand!
Team Woodside is a community of people helping each other cross the finish line while raising funds to protect orphans.
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. Members of Team Woodside do two things: train for the race and raise funds for orphans.
I am so blessed to run with this team because I am confident that every step we take and every dollar we raise is directly impacting the lives of children who are in need of protection... Children who may have otherwise been lost to the sex slave industry.
"Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow." Isaiah 1:17
How do I fight for them?
Thank you for your prayers and support!
