ABOUT THE EVENT
The Nebo-Truck 5k Trail Run/Walk will be held at 242 Community Church in Ann Arbor, MI on June 3rd, 2017. This 5k is a fundraiser to help purchase a new vehicle for a remote Christian hospital in a very poor region of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Africa. The course will begin and end at 2|42 Community church but run primarily through the Saginaw Forest trail system directly behind the church building.
ABOUT THE CAUSE
E4 Project has worked in partnership with the Nebobongo Hospital since 2012, where they have been operating through the use of a 1982 Land Rover Defender, it is no longer operational, and are in desperate need of a new vehicle. E4 programs have been providing relief services to the region through the hospital and local church while simultaneously engaging in community development programs that will help lead to long-term sustainable growth. A new vehicle is crucial for not only day-to-day operations of this hospital but also with multiple other community development initiatives.
