Bike for Burma
July 1-2, 2017
Join us as we cycle 150 miles from the Emmanuel Spring Lake Park Campus to Duluth, MN, over 2 days. We are riding to raise money and awareness to support our friends in refugee camps on the Thai–Burma border, with the expertise of Emmanuel’s ministry partner, Venture (venture.org). A Burnsville, MN-based nonprofit begun by college students with a dream to live out their faith with acts of service, Venture’s core belief is to help people like you spend your greatest energies on the world’s greatest needs.
Our goal as a church is to raise $20,000 to buy one container of food that will serve 272,000 meals for the refugee on the Thailand-Burma border. We are asking each rider to raise a minimum of $1000.
In November 2017, Emmanuel is going to send a small team to the Thailand–Burma border to distribute the container of meals and minister through prayer, teaching, and providing food and care packages.
