THE 100 MILE CHALLENGE

20 runners dribbling a basketball 5 miles each spanning 100 miles across New York City and New Jersey to stop the genocide in Sudan-ONLY AT BALL FOR LIVES!!

On Sunday, October 11th, our first dribbler will begin at 6 a.m. on 60th Street and Boulevard East in West New York, NJ (directly across the Hudson River from Midtown Manhattan). The ball will be dribbled 5 miles south where another dribbler will be waiting to take it the next 5 miles past Hoboken into Jersey City. 20 different runners will dribble a basketball 5 miles each as we run through all 5 boroughs of NYC and back over the George Washington Bridge into New Jersey. At 9 p.m. we will arrive back at 60th Street as the 100 Mile Challenge is completed. Amazing how far God takes our dreams for Him right??

With each dribbler, we will have another runner run along side. We will also have at least 10 people getting involved in miscellaneous responsibilities such as taking pictures and videos, handing out DribbletheWorld.com postcards, cheering, and handing out water. That’s 50 total people involved in making this happen-what an opportunity to make a huge difference!

So what are we using this opportunity for? Genocide has been taking place for years in Sudan. Hundreds of thousands have been killed, and 2.7 million have been displaced. This is the genocide of our time. The world slept on Rwanda in the 90’s-it’s our time to do something about Sudan.

Our goal is to have each participant find 20 people to donate $5 each (just as 20 of us are dribbling 5 miles each). If 50 people raise $100 apiece, we’ll have $5000 to benefit the people of Sudan. We’ve picked 4 solid organizations working to stop the genocide politically or help save the lives of the 2.7 million displaced:

Save Darfur

World Vision

Samaritan’s Purse

Global Response Network

Throw Bethesda Outreach into the mix (which we want to see spread throughout Africa), and we’ve got 5 organizations to send $1000 each to.

We want this effort (along with everything we do) to be an inspiring picture of the Church of Jesus Christ: children of God coming together to be used of Him to offer life in this dying world. Help us accomplish just that.

You’ll be hearing from us soon!
