This is the heart of why we are hosting The Rhino Challenge. It is our privilege to work and partner with two extraordinary charities that are based out of the Grand Rapids area. We have chosen these relationships because they both hold true to the things we support in our mission. They believe in and support family, community, health, and life.
Life International has created a life giving community that spans the globe by offering life giving resources which include training for community leaders, resource centers for expecting mothers, and support for any who are hurting. They have a passion for people and desire that all may have life and life abundant. They do whatever, whenever, wherever for the cause of life.
For over 50 years, Wedgwood Christian Services has been helping troubled youth discover lives filled with meaning. They offer multiple resources to the Grand Rapids area which include counseling and educational services for kids and families. The area of Wedgwood that we are supporting directly is the Manasseh Project. This is a specialized trauma and recovery center for girls that have been sexually abused, and provides a safe environment for victims to heal and restore both body and mind. The center offers therapy in music, art and dance, as well as offering academic options which allow the girls to strive and achieve their goals of personal success.
Again, we could not be more excited about ours and your opportunity to support these great causes through The Rhino Challenge event. It is our hope that what we do through our event will allow everyone to participate in creating opportunities for these charities to further their missions and impact many more lives.
