Gazelle Girl 2017

Sunday, April 23rd

Walk, run, or strut with #teamwar in the annual Gazelle Girl run as we strive to raise $50k for our Rescue 911 fund!

The theme is “Our Sweat for their Tears.” We run to raise awareness and to support men, women, and children trapped in the bonds of exploitation around the world.

There will be three options for this race: a 5K, 10K, & half-marathon. Prizes will be given to those raising over $100, $250, $500, & $1000 in sponsorships. Check out our fabulous prizes below!

To get started, follow these two simple steps:

  1. Sign up for Gazelle Girl by following this link and using code: GGWARTEAM17 to receive $5 off registration.
  2. Join our free Team WAR page by following this link. All you have to do is join our team and set up your fundraising page.

Don’t live in the Greater Grand Rapids Area? You can still run in a race near you that weekend and raise money for Rescue 911! You can also create your own race that weekend. If you will be participating in a race outside of Gazelle Girl, skip step 1 and go straight to step 2.

We will be with you every step of the way as you raise funds and train for this awesome race! Call us at 616-855-0796 if you have any questions.

faithbox-1Women At Risk, International was recently featured in Faithbox through our WAR Chest Boutique! If you’ve never heard of it, you should know that seeks to inspire daily Christian living by encouraging those who receive its monthly subscription box to grow in their faith and make an impact in their communities. At the heart of Faithbox is a desire to invite consumers to discover meaningful products from companies and organizations like ours that are interested in changing lives.

Each month, Faithbox picks items from unique companies and organizations that, as they point out, “respect God’s people and His creation.” They have included everything from reusable water bottles to handmade and eco-friendly blankets, and more. Also included each month is a devotional written by the Faithbox team, called “Everyday Faith.” These devotionals have scriptures, challenges, and seasonal prayers. Each box purchased from Faithbox also provides three meals for hungry kids around the world through its partnership with Rice Bowls, a faith-based ministry working to alleviate world hunger.

To take advantage of this special opportunity to spread the word about WAR, Int’l, the women in our U.S. Training Center worked diligently to complete the 10,500 keychain order we received from Faithbox in August 2016 for our very first wholesale order through WAR Chest Boutique. With barely three weeks to complete the project, it was all-hands-on-deck as the ladies fought to reach that daunting goal.

The September 2016 Faithbox that included one of these WAR, Int’l keychains was reviewed online by Hello Subscription, and you are most welcome to view that here. To buy one of the unique keychains we made for this project, you may visit any of our three boutique locations in Naperville, IL, Rockford, MI, and Wyoming, MI.

faithbox-2We are excited to share the news of this incredible blessing with you. Thanks to you and your encouraging support, we are able to expand the impact of our work and reach new heights through opportunities like wholesale. We also give special thanks to the Faithbox team for its mission of serving both organizations and community members through their monthly subscription box!
