After several years of a handful of runners sporting Venture singlets at various races around the country, Team Venture was born and became an official Charity Partner for the Twin Cities Marathon (TCM).
In 2018 Team Venture had 32 runners represented at TCM and collectively raised $18,880 for anti-trafficking initiatives in SE Asia. In 2019 our team of 32 runners raised $28,142.
Registration codes and instructions on how to register to officially join Team Venture were released to interested participants in early March. You will receive this information when you choose to join the team. By using the specific Team Venture registration code, you are automatically added to the Venture team.
Each runner will use our Venture Miles platform which allows you to track your miles, track funds raised and includes a devotional component.
Our team also has a facebook group to stay connected throughout the training months. To build community in other creative ways, we will have 2 training meals/meetings together late summer/early fall as we prepare for race day.
Our goal in 2020 is to have 100 runners at TCM between all 4 distances (Full, 10 Mile, 10K & 5K) and raise $54,000 to care for 50 Badi girls in Nepal for 1 year to provide education, safe housing and discipleship.
