Help Raise $25K for the LDS Church Mission Fund
About This DealToggle
Saints and Sinners has partnered with DailyLDS.com to bring you the first annual Saints and Sinners Half Marathon & Team Relay. This LDS targeted race was created to bring LDS runners together from across the nation to run for a cause we all believe in â€“ missionary work.
What is it?
The first ever LDS Half Marathon & Team Relay targeting LDS runners will benefit missionaries who want to serve missions but cannot afford to do so on their own. All of the event organizers are volunteers and will be donating their time and resources to bring this event to pass. 100% of the proceeds will go to the LDS Church Missionary Fund.
Raise at least $25,000 for the LDS Church Missionary fund to help those who want to serve a mission but cannot afford to without the help of others. If only 500 people participate in this event, we will reach our goal!
When and Where:
The event will be held on October 27th, 2012 in Boulder City, NV.
What will Get for Helping:
…â€¢ Individual Registration for the Saints and Sinners Half Marathon ($70 value)
…â€¢ Pillow Tie – Inflatable Missionary Tie ($20 value)
…â€¢ Mormon Beliefs and Doctrines Made Easier by David Ridges ($28 value)
Inspired by the January 2011 Ensign story of Sedrick Tshiambine of the DR Congo, we have decided to give 100% of all proceeds to young women and young men who would not be able to serve a mission without the help of others.
In order for Sedrick to serve a mission, he had to earn enough money to purchase a passport, which is $250 (about 2/3 the cost of building a home there).
For 4 years Sedrick cycled 9-19 miles a day across the hot African savanna to outlying villages to purchase bananas, which he would then return to the city to sell. Sedrick averaged about 112 miles a week, earning him $1.25 each week or $65 a year. Undaunted, he continued carrying his heavy laden bicycle until he had enough to purchase his passport 4 years later.
Come join us for an event like none other!
