Fundraising for LIFE Runners

Our fundraising efforts spread awareness, save mothers heartache, save children’s lives, and give others an opportunity to be part of this mission – All In Christ for Pro-Life!  “I don’t like asking people to give money; but, I have found that people are willing to do just that for this cause – amazing.”.A

Annual Teamwork:  Adult LIFE Runners are encouraged to raise/contribute $262 annually to help our life-saving Team grow A-Cross America and around the world (1 Cor 3:6).  Tax deductible LIFE Runners donations can be given online or mailed to our finance officer:  Scott Casmer, 3639 Oak Meadow Dr., Colorado Springs, CO 80920.

“I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow.” ~ 1 Cor 3:6

Why donate to LIFE Runners?  The LIFE Runners jersey is so powerful for bringing a positive Pro-Life message to places in our culture that can’t be reached easily by other media (schools, churches, grocery story, work, races).  Our “REMEMBER The Unborn” jersey message keeps the issue top of mind and starts conversations, impacting hearts/minds for saving lives.  LIFE Runners bring abortion vulnerable women to help at pregnancy help centers.  LIFE Runners help prevent abortion and provide a healing community for post-abortion mothers, fathers, and families.  The National LIFE Runners Team provides such a positive way to put your Pro-Life faith in action and save lives!

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us persevere in running the race set before us…with our eyes fixed on Jesus.”  ~ Heb 12:1-2
