Thank you to everyone who participated in the 3rd Annual Joshua 1:9 Freedom 5K! The Lord blessed us with great weather and fun for all.


We were able to raise $4,700 this year and the funds went directly to help Iraqi Christians fleeing from persecution. We also took a collection of hats, gloves, mittens, and scarves and they have been shipped over to the refugees in preparation for their winter. Joshuacord partnered with The American Foundation for Relief & Reconciliation in the Middle East and Rev. Andrew White, the Pastor of St. George’s Church in Baghdad, Iraq, to ensure your gifts get to those who need it the most. If you have other items to donate let us know and we can continue to send over. Your generosity is having a powerful impact on the lives of our brothers and sisters in Iraq. THANK YOU.

Our run would not be possible without you, our sponsors, and the support of many local churches and pastors. We are so appreciative of your prayers, time, and donations.

Thank you to Jamie at our FAVORITE radio station – SpiritFM 90.5 for the amazing support he provided. We are so thankful for his passion to help the persecuted church.

We are so blessed to have the support from so many sponsors this year. A HUGE thank you to Living Fuel, our title sponsor, who supported the run from the moment they heard about it. We encourage you to support these local businesses and ministries who have a heart to support our community and Christians globally.
