why we run

On Team Woodside, we run to provide life-giving care to at-risk children living in orphanages in Thailand and India. Each sponsorship brings relief and hope to a child, shining the love of Christ in the darkest of circumstances.


Akha House of Light – Thailand

The Akha House of Light is home to 80 at-risk children. Our sponsorships provide each child with a safe place to live, clothing, three meals a day, Christian education, and proper health care. Most of all, they allow us to show these children the abundant love of their Heavenly Father.

Magimai Girls’ Home – India

The Magimai Orphanage is a haven for 15 girls who’ve lost their parents to AIDS. Your sponsorship not only cares for a child’s physical needs, but their spiritual needs with the goal of long-term adoption by a loving Christian family in India.

get involved

Team Woodside participates in the Detroit Free Press Marathon, with options for a full marathon, half marathon, 10K, and 5K.

To be a part of Team Woodside is about more than running; it’s about the child you sponsor by fundraising for your race.

When you sign up, we’ll guide you in how to raise the funds that provide life-giving sponsorship to your child.

Anyone can be a part of Team Woodside, whether you’ve been a runner for years or you’re not sure where to begin.

We’re here to support you every step of the way, helping you train for your race and fundraise for the child whose life you’re running to change.
