Run the Race

This fall, twenty-four runners will embark on a journey of endurance in order to raise money and awareness for the Living Water Ministries scholarship fund. Over the course of 36 hours our team of runners will cover 200 miles, traveling from Muskegon, MI to Traverse City, MI through various lakeshore communities. While we will most certainly complete the demanding physical goals of this race, we need your help to complete the financial goals of this effort.

Living Water Ministries (LWM) is an organization committed to faith formation, service, leadership, and community for all of God’s children. LWM is an expression of ELCA and Episcopal churches in Michigan that reaches beyond denominational and geographical lines to share the gospel far and wide. A large portion of the work LWM does is through summer camp experiences that occur at their facility called Stony Lake in New Era, MI.

As a result of this focus on outreach to all of God’s children, Living Water Ministries serves children in foster care, families experiencing homelessness, adults with developmental disabilities, and a great number of campers experiencing socioeconomic challenges. LWM also provides faith-based leadership programs that train leaders with a raised awareness of the ills of racism, and increases their cross-cultural competency through immersive experiences.

Living Water Ministries is an innovative organization focused on making positive change in the world as an expression of faith. The LWM scholarship fund has reached hundreds of youth in the last four years alone! It is my hope that you will consider being one of my sponsors as I run the race this fall in support of this scholarship fund so that hundreds more children might also have transformative experiences of faith.
