Gambia, West Africa
As we receive sponsors and runners we will keep you up to date on where our fundraising is at! This year we will be raising money to build a well in Gambia, West Africa. We are partnering with our missionary Daniel Jenkins to build a well for needy tribes in Gambia.
The ShareJOY Run is a 5K run/1-mile fun walk opportunity for raising funds to provide clean running water for those who do not have access to it. Join us on November 30th to run for a great cause.
This year our attention is drawn to Gambia, West Africa. We are partnering with Missionary Daniel Jenkins to dig a well for needy villages. Our financial goal is to raise $8500 for this great need. Our expanded focus is to provide financial support and manpower for the relief efforts of Hurricane Dorian and any other natural disasters that will take place between now and race day. All the funds raised above $8500 will go towards those great needs.
Watch the video below to learn more about the Jenkins' family and the work in Gambia, West Africa.
