With just days away from the inaugural Race 4 More in Carmel, a donor has come forward offering matching funds for donations made now through race day – up to $13,000. The race happens on Saturday at Northview Church, 131st St. and Hazel Dell Pkwy., Carmel.
Participants will either run or walk, four miles or one as part of this fundraiser aimed at fighting poverty through the efforts of Love at Work Ministries, a local Christian nonprofit. Nicknamed the “Match 4 More,” this matching opportunity means the value of a donation doubles in its power to help some of the neediest people in the world. This year’s goal is to raise $205,000.
“The generosity of this donor energizes our efforts to build a new feeding center that will nourish hundreds of hungry kids in the slums of Costa Rica,” says Larry Prible, who co-founded Love at Work with his wife, Carole.
The proceeds from the Race 4 More will be used in Alajuelita, San José, Costa Rica to eliminate poverty housing, hunger and hopelessness, to educate underprivileged kids, and raise up future, Godly leaders.
“You’ve got to think of these kids like you would your own kids, as having absolutely equal value and potential in the eyes of God,” added Carole.
To help Love at Work reach this matching potential, visit www.Race4More.com and donate.
Those interested in participating can still sign up online. Registration is 6:45 to 8 a.m. Saturday with the Pee Wee Race (ages 2-9) beginning at 8 a.m. and the four-mile and one-mile races starting at 8:30 a.m. Awards and a celebration will immediately follow the four-mile race.
