Who are we running for?

Kids at Tanzania's Grace School, Youth Empowerment Services (YES), and FOREFRONT!

Cause #1: Kids at Tanzania's Grace School

The Grace Elementary School strives to empower young children in Tanzania with the gospel and to meet the growing demand for youth education and community development in the area. The response from the community has been overwhelmingly positive, and in just two years, the school has outgrown its walls. 

Currently, the nursery, kindergarten, and first grade programs are spread throughout the day because there are not enough classrooms to accommodate all 200 students. This year, GRACE-IN-MOTION is focusing on adding a second grade curriculum, in addition to building more classrooms.

With your support, we can also help relieve the families of some financial burden to help their children focus on learning and growing in faith.


Cause #2: Youth Empowerment Services (YES)

Youth Empowerment Services has been impacting the New Brunswick, New Jersey area since 2003, maintaining a commitment to the region by providing after school tutoring, mentorship programs, and resources for professional development to local, underprivileged youth and families.
