Sponsored Challenge Walk Raises over £20000 for Street Children in Bogota

Mission Possible organised a sponsored Challenge walk to raise money to help children in Bogota which took place in July. Despite being a little tired, Joe and Sadie successfully completed the Mission Possible 50 mile North Coast Challenge Walk.

These shoes were made for walking

The walk was done over a three day period – 17 miles each day, starting in Strand Road, Coleraine. It continued through Portstewart, Portrush, Portballintrae and finished in Bushmills. They were blessed with good weather and truly enjoyed the beautiful, coastal scenery. Most importantly they had no injuries or ill health relating to the walk.

Just 49.5 miles to go!

We thank and praise God that the total amount of sponsorship raised to date is £20,765!! This has far exceeded all expectations and proves that Mission Possible’s motto of “Little is much when God is in it” has proved to be so true.

Mission Possible now has sufficient funding to purchase premises which can be adapted and used as a residential home for little girls who are at risk of being abandoned to a life of begging, hunger, crime and abuse on the streets of Bogota, Colombia. We are presently liaising with our colleagues in Bogota where suitable premises have recently become available to purchase.

Thank you

To all who sponsored this event, Mission Possible wish to extend their deepest gratitude and thanks. It has been such a joy, encouragement and rewarding experience to see God’s blessing through the generosity of so many kind people.

A special word of thanks must go to the event sponsor, William Taggart from William Taggart Car Sales.

Mission Possible still requires £50,000 funding in order to renovate and adapt the property; therefore if you have not previously sponsored this event, it’s not too late. All donations will be gratefully accepted and remember that every penny donated goes to this project with no deductions made for administration or overheads.

Payment can be made by cheque made payable to Mission Possible and posted to the shop at 44 Main Street, Portglenone, Co. Antrim, BT44 8HS, or click here to use the Give.Net on line facility to give in order to help street children in Bogota.
