The Racers: A team of 4 hardy individuals who want to make a difference in eradicating one of our greatest injustices: Bible poverty. Racers commit to the following:
Build a co-ed team of four, or sign up individually and we will find a team for you to be on. Race against time and other teams in demanding physical and linguistic challenges.
Pray for endurance to run the race set before us - running the baton of Bible translation to the finish line. Also invite others to pray for the Bibleless as the team competes.
Commit to the fundraising goal of $2,000 per team ($500 per racer). These monies go to support Bible translation projects around the world.
Advocate for the Bibleless upon returning home.
Go to the ends of the earth, figuratively (through the medium of the race) and literally in answer to God's call. (Matt. 28)
