So why a ‘Death Race for Life’?
Recently, Christian rapper Nelson ‘Runaway’ Diaz presented Gateway with a new and exciting fundraiser.

Nelson is involved with extreme sports. You can read all about it by clicking the link to his press release below.

Even though the "2014 Spartan Death Race...For Life" will be replacing our annual Walk-for-the-Little-Ones you are still needed to help us gather sponsors for this event. Links to a printable sponsor sheet and the May Gateway Today newsletter are found below.

Donations can be made via PayPal or you can simply mail a check to Gateway marked "Death Race".   Sponsor forms can be mailed to Gateway or scanned and emailed to dean@gateway.org. Gateway needs your help getting sponsors and Nelson will be encouraged as well.

Nelson shares his testimony and briefly explains the DRFL

Nelson will endure the 3 day obstacle challenge, navigating through dozens of miles in the mountains of Vermont while carrying all the food and equipment that he will need to survive!
