2004 Run For The Son Set
Earth Day At Brooklyn Church

2004 Run For The Son Set

On Saturday, May 1, the Christian Motorcyclists Association will hold its 17th annual Run for the Son motorcycle ride. The Wheels for Christ Chapter in Montrose, PA, is one of the approximately 500 chapters participating in this run. This will be a 100-mile, scenic mountain ride in which riders will seek sponsors to help raise money for CMA to "spread the light of Jesus to every nation." Over the past 16 years, CMA has raised over $8 million to help present the Gospel of Jesus Christ to millions of people around the world. Every penny promptly goes to work and CMA is a member of the Evangelical Council of Financial Accountability (ECFA). This year, twenty percent goes for Bibles to closed and restricted countries, twenty percent goes for motorcycles to native pastors around the world, twenty percent goes to help the "Jesus Film" spread the Word of God, and forty percent is used by CMA to help reach motorcyclists here in the United States.

This year’s goal is $2,400,000. Anyone interested in participating in this event can meet at 9:00 a.m., May 1, at McDonald’s, Montrose, PA. For further information, or if you would like to sponsor someone for the run, please call (570) 836–5030.
