In October 2019 Open Doors sent a team from New Zealand and Australian to South Korea to run, cycle and hike all while raising funds for the persecuted Church.

Each athlete is set the challenge of raising $10,000 for the persecuted church. Open Doors will distribute the money to support persecuted Christians in Asia.

“The week that I spent doing the Muskathlon in Lebanon changed my life and faith. As I ran, I realised that I was running to suffer with the persecuted church, to have but the tiniest glimpse into the lives of Christians in the Middle East.”
