Run for Colombia

Run for Colombia

My wife and I worked for several years for the Vive Foundation in Colombia. Since returning to the UK in 2017 I have wanted to do something to raise money for the foundation. I know that they have challenges with their budget and as I’m on furlough at the moment would like to use the time available to do a sponsored run to help raise some support.

Run for Colombia

Many of you will know that Yancy and I served with Latin Link in Colombia for several years working with the Vive Foundation. The Vive Foundation supports rural churches in Colombia with their children’s ministries developing a curriculum and training leaders so that children in the most rural areas of Colombia can hear the gospel message. I wanted to run the distance from the UK to Colombia but realised that at 5239 miles this would be impossible. So after some thought I decided that the distance from my home to the airport to catch a flight to Colombia is a distance that I could attempt. So between 8th June and 24th June I will be running the distance of 129 miles which is the distance from my home town of Nottingham to Heathrow airport. I will run in local parks, running several miles each day during the dates in June.
If you would like to make a donation it would be greatly appreciated and would help the work of the Vive Foundation to continue to make a difference in the lives of many children in some of the poorest areas of Colombia. Many thanks for you support.
