Please bring two non-perishable food items per person on the day of the race to help meet the needs of the hungry in our community. A portion of the registration fees will help to meet the needs of those who are sick, lonely and hurting as we are able. A hand of hope called Hope in Action is offered through the Good Samaritan Ministries Widows & Orphans. We continue our work with 5 Rock Ranch as well as reaching out to other shelters in our area. This includes the new Beaverton location of the Union Gospel Mission Life Change Center, a safe place for women and children to find healing and stability. We plan to help with food donations and basic monthly needs.
Internationally, the GSM Widows & Orphans Satellite group makes it possible for children living in poverty to attend school and receive three meals a day, including 152 orphans in Kenya. And, we provide basic food and shelter to women and children who are alone.
Through the GSM Micro-credit Empowerment Fund, we come alongside widows to assist with starting a business so they can have a way to feed their children. We also help provide clean water, medicines, and testing for HIV and malaria.
At GSM, our goal is to give a hand up, to share a heart of encouragement, and to build relationships with people in need. Please partner with us. Together we can continue to offer encouragement and support to widows and orphans here and around the world.
Join the Race for Hope. They’re looking up to you.
