The Freedom Endured Running Group is a collection of regular people who have united under a shared goal — to dramatically improve others’ lives through running. You might say we’re crazy — and you might be right! But we’re just crazy enough to believe that if we can unify great people around a big fat goal, then great things will happen.

In 2015, we are uniting to train and run in the Detroit Free Press Marathon, and in the process raise money to dig fresh water wells for people in Cambodia. The Cambodia Life Center in Phnom Penh exists to provide education, community, and most importantly spiritual truth to children there and in the surrounding villages. Currently the Life Center is home to 30 children and a school to 300 children. Our goal is simple — dig a well at the Life Center to make life better for them and the surrounding community. Water for that village will improve health for the children and their families, and provide a means for the Center to raise fish for food. It will also provide extra funds which will be used to sponsor more children who are in high risk situations.

We’re going to train together, encourage each other and run our race with purpose. Whether you choose a half marathon, full marathon or a relay team, we’ll help each other get ready for the big day in October. We follow a weekly training plan and meet every Saturday morning to run as a group!

Anyone that wants to! In fact, YOU, if you’d like to! It doesn’t require any prior experience, just the desire to get fit, build great relationships and do our part to improve the lives of Cambodians.

“There’s no way I could do that.” Not true! You’d be quite surprised to learn who has accepted the challenge to train for a major endurance run. We can do more than we think we can! But doing it as a team makes all the difference! You likely CAN do it, and we want you to run with us and find out!
