Road2Hope: Let's Fundraise!

Of course, the reason we all sign up for Road2Hope is because we want to support a cause we believe in while enjoying some fresh air.  But, it doesn't hurt to have some incentives along the way!

What is Road2Hope: Hamilton?

Road2Hope: Hamilton is an exciting run/walk of hope. EduDeo Ministries partners with Runner's Den, who created this professional race to benefit local and global charities. Young or old, advanced or beginner, can run or walk with us to raise awareness of and funds for the ministry of EduDeo as we work to transform young hearts and minds with the Gospel message of hope through Christian education in developing countries.

Road2Hope takes place on the beautiful Hamilton Beach Recreation Trail, which stretches along the shore of Lake Ontario linking Hamilton to Niagara-on-the-Lake and includes beautiful views of the water as well as the green spaces and wetlands to the south.

What a blessing it is to be able to lace up a pair of running shoes and enjoy the privilege of running on paved walkways in a beautiful park! It is our hope and prayer that all those who take part in Road2Hope every year will be mindful of the children in developing countries for whom life can be a painful and challenging road. Road2Hope is a fun, healthy, and community-building way to play a role in enhancing their lives.

Road2Hope 2014 Was A Great Success Thanks to You!

November 1-2, 2014 was an incredible day as runners came together to be challenged while making a difference. Seeing everyone come together to do something for a great cause was an inspiration to us all. For a second year in a row we had a record number of participants run/walk with EduDeo Ministries, which resulted in over $86,000 for the development of Christ-centred education globally!

If you participated in last year's race you can check your race times here. Just select the event you participated in. Photos from the event can be seen on our Road2Hope Photo Gallery and in HM Road2Hope albums.
