We are thrilled to have the opportunity to support our precious friend, Jonathan, the President and Founder of the Rurashun Foundation. He will be running 1000km over 10 days beginning in Manta, Ecuador and finishing at over 9000 ft. altitude in Quito, Ecuador. He has dreamed for years about starting this foundation to help under privileged children and families and
...it is now a reality!
He trains leaders in various communities how to teach sports and discipleship programs to children who are growing up like he did. He never knew his father. His mother passed away when he was 15 years old. By the grace of God, he was 'adopted' by Teen Missions, an organization who discipled him and loved him through his teenage years. Most children who are orphaned end up on the streets and involved in drugs and gangs.
He launched a pilot program in Cayambe, Ecuador and it has had much success. His goal is to open 30 training centers over the next year. We are excited to welcome this program into Rocafuerte and Esmeraldas within the coming months!
Jonathan's goal is to raise $50,000 to launch this program in 30 locations. The funds will be used to purchase the needed equipment, pay coaches and support the children in the program.
On November 14th he will begin running to raise awareness of this program!
Will you sponsor him and this ministry as he runs
1000 km in 10 days???
This program is changing lives and he is ready to bring the program to more children!

We need to provide private medical care for Jonathan as he approaches Quito. To ensure he receives the best medical treatment, we need to hire the Red Cross to assist in the case of an emergency. Please help!
