Connecting Churches to Orphanages around the World through Charity Runs

Orphans around the world need your help! Without adults to speak on their behalf, Orphans are exceptionally vulnerable. Without Adult supervision or proper medical care, orphans fall victim to hunger, disease and ailments, that otherwise could be cured with simple treatments.
FACT: In many areas of the world, Orphanages provide the Best and Last line of defence against these realities in third world countries. But many existing Orphanages are financially struggling.

Every £15 donated feeds an Orphan Child for an entire month! Each person in our team is trying to raise money for at least 1-year supply of food (£180) for an Orphan child., so any amount you can give would be a blessing to Orphans around the World!

Meeting / Starting Point
"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world" (James 1:27)
Charity Runs are a great way to add energy and momentum to your Church while participating in the kingdom cause of "Caring for Orphans and Orphanages".
Here are a few of the specific Benefits Your Church can expect:
to support Orphans without drawing from their church budget.
In our current extended season of economic challenges, Orphan Run 4 Hope Project does not use typical means of supporting mission projects. There are no offerings or pledges. Instead it uses the relational currency of co-workers, neighbours, friends, family, and local businesses to generate donations. By targeting funds outside the Church, it does not take money from a Church’s budget or Missions Budget. All contributions come from outside of the church and donations are done simply and electronically through a secure website.
while empowering participants to do something significant.
Runners and non-runners alike will experience the motivational power of a cause greater than themselves that motivates them to accomplish the goal. They will see first hand how they can impact the world for Christ in a significant way. As they train for the event, participants become a team and develop authentic community as they strive toward the goal of completing the race and raising funds to provide for the specific needs of Orphans. For many of the people who have never done a race, the process is a physical journey to get in better shape as well as a spiritual journey to accomplish something that adds health to their lifestyle. The feeling of accomplishment from starting and completing the journey makes a significant impact on participants and Orphan Children.
to do something for Christ by tapping into their relational network.
Each person uses their God given relationships at work, with neighbours, friends & family members for the pure cause of financially helping Orphans. The money raised helps rescue and provide care for Orphan children. Participants will invite people to support them on this noble quest.
to Church, a worthy missions project & Jesus’ love.
This innovative Charity Run is a great community outreach tool to gain Church exposure in their community. As participating people from partnering Churches start asking co-workers and friends to get involved, it highlights how their Church is engaged in a worthy cause. Also, participation is not limited to Church members. Participants are encouraged to invite co-workers and friends to run in the event. It is a great time to develop relationships with people that do not know Jesus and help them understand His love.
volunteerism through contagious, active people.
The running participants become a part of a team that train together and discover the joy of active participation. Once a person taps into how they can make a significant impact in God’s Kingdom… they want to serve more and gather others to join.
You can make the difference in the life of an orphan child.
There are an increasing amount of Races and Charity Runs people can participate in these days. ORPHAN RUN 4 HOPE is unique: you help impact the lives of over 6,700 Orphan Children at 45 Orphanages in 35 Countries.
What if I'm a non-runner?
Non-Runners make Great Participants!
The journey is spiritual and physical as you trust God to empower you toward better health while making a global impact. We have a “couch to race” training outline that will help Non-Runners succeed. Also, you would be running for a PURE CAUSE (James 1:27). Often we are not motivated enough in and of ourselves… but the cause of helping Orphan Children should.
