Just completed 100miles in faith that I will be with you guys some day in Vietnam if the Lord wills it to be. I have a marathon at the end of the month so I had to be a bit creative in fitting this 100 mile run in. I covered Rowan, Montgomery, Clark, Bourbon, and Bath counties in Kentucky. 2 days were 20+ miles, 3 days were 13+ miles, 2 recovery run days of 8 or less, and a 5k kicked it off at the beginning of the week with a 19:03 winning time.
I wish to one day run an ultra Marathon distance. I hope to do such a thing in Vietnam some day to raise money to support the many orphans there. I am asking you to donate as I will be running here in the United States on those dates praying for those that are there and praying for the day I will join you there in Vietnam. There run and my run will be the first week of October.The challenge for the week is $0.10 per mile. Can you do that? If I run 106 miles that is $10.60. Thanks Michael D Short
Enduring Voices 100-mile Run 2016
Enduring Voices 100 Mile Run - 2016 will be completed from October 4-6. Our runners will start at Cinnamon Top, a remote mountain near the Laotian border in the central highlands of Vietnam. We will finish near the China Sea, a distance of 100 miles across Quang Nam Province, the entire width of central Vietnam! Along the way, we will pass through numerous villages, orphanages, and schools, visiting the children of Vietnam along the way. We have room for individual runners and relay teams, but each must be able to run 33 miles per day for three consecutive days.
New this year is a Simul-Run! Runners who wish to participate, but aren't able to travel to Vietnam, can accumulate miles between September 30 and October 6.
We aim to raise $50,000 this year, and ask that individuals raise support through our fundraising page. Whether you will be in Vietnam, or running at home, we appreciate your dedication and support!
Orphan Voice is a faith-based, orphan relief organization that meets the needs of “the least of these” in Vietnam and Southeast Asia. We work to protect orphans, children living in state institutions, special needs children including the deaf, families at risk to place their child in an orphanage, and children and youth at risk for sexual or labor trafficking.
We will care for the orphan,
Wherever she may be found.
If he is thirsty, we will give him drink;
If she is hungry, we will give her bread;
If he is naked, we will clothe him;
If she is homeless, we will shelter her;
If he is without comfort we will hold him,
Until he knows Everlasting Love.
Tony Brewer, Director
