Run for the Son is the fundraiser for Christian Motorcyclists Association. This international foundation has its headquarters in Hatfield. CMA’s Run for the Son started as an effort to provide one motorcycle to a pastor in Guatemala. From that simple beginning, Run for the Son has now provided transportation to more than 13,000 pastors, evangelists and Christian workers around the world. Over the past thirty years, CMA has been able to extend the open arms of Christ to millions of people around the world as a result of the funds raised for Run for the Son. By partnering with three like-minded ministries, CMA has been able to place the message of hope and salvation in front of millions of people in 192 countries throughout the world.
Since its beginning, Run for the Son has raised over 69 million dollars to help spread the message of salvation through Christ, resulting in over 24 million salvations. Each CMA chapter is invited to collect money during the year through donations and fundraisers for this cause. On June 21, at the National Rally, it was announced that the total raised for the year ending May, 2018 was $4,769,143.37. From this amount, the three ministry partner organizations were given over $900,000 each. The top ten chapters throughout the nation which raised the most funds were announced. The local Home Front Warriors Chapter was number four in the nation with $41,832.49 having been given to Run for the Son.
Members of the Home Front Warriors were asked to go on stage to be recognized. Roger Marney is president of the local CMA group. Home Front Warriors meet the fourth Monday of the month at the meeting room of the Limetree with eating at 6:00 PM and the meeting beginning at 7:00. The goal of CMA is to “change the world one heart at a time”. Visitors are invited to attend meetings.
