Team Mercy Ministries Runs 236 Miles to Help Change Lives

This month a team of 16 men and women ran the St. Louis Marathon (26.2 miles) and Half-Marathon (13.1 miles) to show their support for Mercy Ministries. In total, the team ran 236 miles to help change young women’s lives!

The evening before the big day, the team gathered for a boost of carbohydrates with a pasta party hosted in the St. Louis home. They spent time with the Mercy Ministries’ St. Louis residents and heard from local graduates. The team also received encouragement and gratitude for their support. In total, they raised $5,000 for Mercy Ministries.

If you are interested in running on our Nashville Team for the Music City Marathon April 26th, please contact Elizabeth Claybaker at eclaybaker@mercyministries.com.

Way to go team Mercy Ministries!
