How Run 4 The City Started

On Oct. 12, 2013 Mark Junkans ran as many miles as he could in a 24 hour period to raise money for the Non-Profit Organization LINC Houston. He crossed the finish line at Trinity Lutheran Church Downtown after completing 119 miles.  R4TC-2013 raised over $80,000 for local mission work.

In 2014, Mark ran a 200 mile route from Austin to Houston over the course of 5 days.  He stopped at local schools and churches along the way to tell LINC's story and to inspire the younger generation to attempt great things for the Kingdom of God. R4TC-2014 raised almost $50,000 for local mission work and also helped Can Do Missions raise money for their work around the globe.

LINC Houston serves 60,000 individuals a year and helps to strengthen communities through community services, planting churches and developing grassroots leadership to meet the spiritual and physical needs of their own communities.
