The course starts at Teralba Park in Mitchelton and finishes at Crockett Park, Woody Point. View Course Overview

Desperately Searching for Survival

"You've got to do something!" the parents of the village begged. They lived in deep poverty, rejected by society and ignored by the government. Their only source of water was a hole in the ground a half mile away containing polluted, bacteria-infected water. Because of waterborne illnesses, 18 of their beloved children died in one year's time.

The Bridge of Hope centers provide school supplies, a daily meal, medical checkups and more. With your help, we can reach many more villages like this one with the hope found in Christ. And this is only the beginning!

Every day life for a Dalit child is a Marathon!


There are more children in India than any other country in the world. Every day many of them live in acute danger of being trafficked, maimed, or sold into slavery.

Many of the children have parents who are bonded labourers.

You can walk your own marathon and change this by making an investment in their freedom and their future.

Without your help, most cannot stay in school or escape the poverty that puts them at risk for commercial sexual exploitation, forced labour, or bonded labour.
