Record Breaking Team Links!

by Jason Bollinger on April 27th, 2015

The London Marathon was truly a sight to behold. Nearly 40,000 runners ran the race as over 750,000 spectators looked on as people ran the grueling 26.2 miles. The London Marathon is one of the biggest fundraisers in the world as over 50 million pounds (that's over 75 million dollars) will be raised for charity as a result of the runners advocating for organizations they love. 

It was truly a sight to behold, and it was an emotional time for both runners and spectators. At Links, we are grateful for those who ran on our team. To this point, our Team Links has raised over 17,000 pounds (25,000 dollars) for missions. We are so grateful to Becky Miller, James Clarry, Paul Bedford, Mandy Ord, and Sam Hunter (Mandy & Sam not pictured) for running for Team Links. All of our runners finished the race, and this is the most money that's every been raised by Team Links.

We are humbled by our team that devoted so much time, energy, and training to run this race. Their stories have inspired us and encouraged us, and we are excited about how this money will be used to allow us to continue to bring Good News to the poor that will change lives and transform communities. 

Well done, Team Links! We are praying for your recovery and look forward to the 2016 marathon!
