$2,500 for Zimbabwe Mission Partnership: July 2017

July 31, 2017

The Zimbabwe Mission Partnership is a local group of 10 churches that work together to support an orphanage in Zimbabwe called Heather Chimhoga Orphan Care. This orphanage is committed to helping the orphans of Zimbabwe by providing them meals, education and medical care. They spend time with these children and give them the care and love that they so desperately need. It is a big undertaking and they need as much help as they can get. That is why the Zimbabwe Mission holds fund-raisers and helps in projects to ensure the HCOC is as prepared as possible.

One of the Zimbabwe Missions biggest fund-raisers is the Suba­ru Elephant Rock Cycling Festival. This festival has been around for 30 years and offer both recreational and competitive cyclists opportunities to ride.

We joined up, for the second year in a row, with Zimbabwe Missions cycling team, “Team Zimbabwe”. This year we had 5 employees ride in the festival. These employees were Jon H, Bob L, Glenn K, Jeff N and David P. David even had his family ride with him!

Bob and Glenn rode in the 62 mile course, Jeff rode the 40 mile course, Jon rode the 23 mile course, and David and his family rode in the family-friendly 8-mile course. They all did such a great job and it looks like they had a lot of fun too!

Plumbline Services donated a total of $2,500, helping Team Zimbabwe raise over $62,000. We are so glad that we were able to participate in this great event and help The Zimbabwe Mission Partnership reach their goal! They are still taking donations, so if you feel led you can donate online at: https://www.crowdrise.com/dona..
