November 11, 2023
Plans for Run for Missions 2023 are in the works! This year’s event will be held Saturday, November 11th and will be run as a relay. Many runners will run 10 legs of 10 miles each and hand off the baton to the next leg. Our goal would be to raise at least $1,000 per leg and hopefully much more! We encourage you all to support your runners with pledges. We also welcome anyone that would like to run or walk a portion of any of these legs.
This year we will support the work of EFC Nepal.
Will you join us? Our runners are already training! We would love to have your support!
