It's that time of year again! Time to put on those running shoes and RunFar.

RunFar (Run for African Relief) is a great way to get involved in the mission of Covenant Mercies. This year round fundraising event has contributed over $86,000 in the last three years.

Here is how it works:

  •     Choose a fitness event in your geographical area (run, walk, bike,marathon, half-marathon, etc.)
  •     Ask your friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, etc. to make a donation to Covenant Mercies on your behalf.

It's that simple. Make sure you register first and then you can begin training and fundraising.

Scott and Rebecca Rudy are a couple from Chester, Pennsylvania who ran the Harrisburg half-marathon on September 9, 2012. They used Facebook as a tool to raise money, and also post about their training progress, their race, and about Covenant Mercies.

They started training using a 16 week plan from runnersworld.com. Scott and Rebecca were able to encourage each other through the training and the race. Rebecca said, "It was an awesome goal to work towards as a couple."

Start your spring and summer off with a goal like Scott and Rebecca; a goal that touches lives in Uganda, Zambia, and Ethiopia.

You don't have to run a race to order a RunFar shirt. Order one on in our online store.
