This March 31, 2019, I'm running the Arlington Marathon. It's a 26.2 mile road race beginning at UTA’s Maverick Stadium. My goal is to have 100 supporters each donate an average of $1 / mile and raise $2600. Would you like to help? 

$2600 Matching Gift Challenge

A generous donor has offered to match, dollar-for-dollar, the first $2600 given by March 31.

Seven years ago, I started running on a dare to raise money for my students who were giving up a summer to serve in missions. Since then, the Marathon-4-Missions has become an annual tradition. I've run over 8,000 miles, and together we've raised approximately $26,000 for missions! It looked doubtful that I'd be able to do my annual missions fundraiser run due to (1) a stubborn foot injury and (2) beginning time-consuming doctoral studies. However, (1) my foot has been WAY better the last 2 months, (2) I've had GREAT runs in lately, and (3) BSM is sending our MOST EVER summer missionaries.

You could give...

  • $0.50/mile = $13

  • $1/mile = $26

  • $2/mile = $52

  • $4/mile = $104

  • Or any other amount.

All proceeds go to support UTA students serving in missions (summer, semester and Christmas) through Go Now Missions. Last year, we sent 20 students to share God's love around the world. This year we expect to send 35 students - our largest number ever!
