The purpose of our organization is to raise funds to support missionaries thru running. God laid it on my heart right after my 1st half marathon to start this non profit organization. He said well now that you love to run, lets channel this passion to better His kingdom. I started running in October of 2009, I hated to run and it didnt help that I was overweight, but a group of ladies at my church said come and run with us on Wednesdays and I fell in love with running. It is a great time to talk to God and praise him for all he does in our lives. I started out running a half mile in October and slowly went up in half a mile increments. Then with God by my side I decided to run the half marathon in St Louis in April 2010. It was hard but my loving husband ran with me, even though he could have taken off, seeing as he has been running most of his life. God knew I needed him to accomplish this goal and he stayed with me the entire 13.1 miles. Shortly after the half , I realized that I wanted to be a running billboard for Christ, so what better way than to have shirts made called running4Jesus and thats were it all started! Now almost 2 years later we have raised money for Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and have helped send students in the fusion programs to countries abroad. Now we are raising money to help fund our churches mission programs.
