Pull out the spandex and saddle your bike or lace up those running shoes because summer is here and with it, Venture tour season! Get ready to benefit the world while you discover something new about yourself and the gifts that God has given you.

We kicked off the 2016 tour season with the Love Does Tour, a beautiful, yet challenging, 500-mile cycling trip along the coast of California to raise money and awareness for Love Does. Around the world in Nepal, students from our partner organization, Light House Foundation Nepal, participated in the 4th National Open Cross Country Championship organized by the Nepal Athletes Association. LHFN girls took 1st and 2nd place and the boys team made it into the top 10!  A little closer to home, one man decided to celebrate his 30th birthday Venture style. Brent Silkey and about 40 of his friends ran 30  miles in one day and raised over $55,000 to help rescue women and children from sex trafficking. Keep scrolling to view photos from tour participants, Light House Foundation Nepal and Venture Local runners from the month of May.
