Venture partners with local communities to bring food security, education, discipleship, and the gospel to the least reached and most vulnerable people in the world.
We engage religious leaders, local governments, community members, and partner non-profits to meet the most pressing needs in remote, conflict-ridden, and desperate regions.
This run will specifically raise money to fund our refugee feeding programs in Southeast Asia, which is home to the world’s longest-running civil war. This war has displaced over 4 million people from their homes, hundreds of thousands of whom still live in Internally Displaced Person (IDP) or refugee camps in the region.
Venture works within the most remote and hardest-struck refugee regions in Southeast Asia to provide nutritious food for the people living in these camps. Through a partnership with Feed My Starving Children, we provide hundreds of thousands of meals every year to refugee camps. Learn more about these programs.
About the Run:
It is ten days, one hundred miles, and goes through three states and two countries! It’s the first ever Washington State Run, and this is the inaugural team!
After meeting the team for training in Vancouver, British Columbia, the runners will drive to the start of this unique relay. Each day, groups of three or four teammates to run three separate segments of 5 to 7 miles per day; in between runs, they'll stretch, cheer on their teammates, and learn about the work Venture does in Southeast Asia. Each day, the runners will run 3 separate times - up to 21 miles per day - for 7 days straight! In the evenings, runners will connect with local churches and tell them about the work Venture does in Southeast Asia.
The runners will finish in Portland, having covered the entire state of Washington by the end. And as the runners meet their fundraising goals prior to departing, they'll inspire their community to actively engage with them in the redemptive and beautiful story of justice and hope that God is writing right here, and right now, through Venture Mission in Southeast Asia.
