New York City Marathon 2010

Eric and Mic did it!! With an incredible time of 4 hours and 5 minutes (WHILE dribbling a basketball!) God used our Canadian friends to gain the attention of thousands of people across New York City:

I can’t believe it’s been 3 years since I ran the ’07 NYC Marathon! Being one of the 40,000+ runners in this event is such a special experience. Every year I come to support, I think for a second “Man, I wish I was doing this!” And yes, that thought lasts ONLY for a second :)

But honestly, something even better than running the Marathon myself, has been seeing people I love get to experience God do something this great through them. Dribble the World has been such an awesome way to experience the unity that exists in the Body of Christ. Eric, Mic, Rach, Claudia, Mr. and Mrs. Martin;  We love you guys!!!

15 of us came out to support Eric and Mic with our Dribble the World Tees! Thanks Mundo! People that have run past events for us continue to be involved, giving us more opportunities to encourage believers and share Christ with the lost. We also had great opportunities to talk with other spectators about Dribble the World, and more importantly, Jesus Christ.  

On top of all this, over $4100 has been raised to help end deaths in Africa from the #1 Killer of children in the world: Malaria. Check out below who has donated to benefit Malaria No More, and join us in saving lives! 

More pictures and testimonials coming soon.
