Our first ever awareness run would not have been possible without you, our sponsors, and the support of many local churches and pastors – who not only prayed for our success, but came out to participate or virtually support. We are so appreciative for your prayers, time, and support.
A special thank you to the following Pastors and congregations for going above and beyond for Joshuacord and the Persecuted Church:
- FishHawk Fellowship Church
- Countryside Baptist Church
- Tampa Underground
- Idlewild Baptist
- Iglesia Cristiana de Avivamiento
- Trinity Baptist New Port Richey
- Terry Kemple and the Community Issues Council
- MacDill Air Force Base Chapel
- In addition to the support from local churches above, we had groups from the following churches come out to support: Glory to Glory Ministries, South Tampa Fellowship, Calvary Chapel, Hyde Park Methodist, Bay Life Church and Grace Family Church.
Thank you to all of the volunteers who supported the event in many ways! Thank you to Support the Troops for their support on race day! We’d also like to thank the Zach Hardison Band for praying for us and spreading the word to our supporters in Virginia.
Congratulations to all participants! The top 3 overall race winners for male and female were Dustin Fletcher, Greg Fann, Ethan Bird, Wibke Rees, Amanda Slattery, and Juliay Tippett. Please take a look at the race results. Next year we plan to include more awards for the age categories! You can review the race pictures as well — thank you to John Fulton (firstname.lastname@example.org) for taking all of the photographs.
We hope you will join us next year for the 2nd Annual Joshua 1:9 Freedom Run! Please take a few minutes to complete a survey on how we can make next year’s race event even better.
Joshuacord is a family-founded nonprofit run solely by volunteers. This is a labor of love for our brothers and sisters who do not have the freedoms we cherish. If you feel a passion for the cause and would like to volunteer with Joshuacord, have us speak at your church/organization, or learn more about becoming a sponsor for next year’s race, please email us at email@example.com.
We have much to be thankful for especially during this time of year – please remember to pray for the Persecuted Church daily.
