FSA Vision Today

 Then the Lord answered me and said, “Record the vision and inscribe it on tablets, that the one who reads it may run. For the vision is yet for the appointed time; it hastens toward the goal, and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; for it will certainly come, it will not delay.”  – Habakkuk 2:2-3

Make no little plans! Aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram, once recorded, will never die, but long after we are gone will be a living thing, asserting itself with growing intensity. -Daniel Burnham – Architect & City Planner

With The Great Global Friendship Run, we have one of the greatest opportunities for “Friendship” of our time for the benefit of orphaned children from all nations of the world. We have the opportunity to join efforts with individuals and organizations in a “People-to-People” initiative which will ignite the world into rethinking possibilities of the significance of one’s own influence.

Throughout all the hemispheres of the world, we have the opportunity of being a catalyst to delivering millions of dollars of donated medical equipment, medicine, clothing, improving orphanages, staffing more workers, and in the fullness of time, to prove friendship is not an intangible axiom.

 Friendship Sports has a powerful mission…compelling …
with a run that must be made

What If?

What if there were a way to bring an event which would make the single greatest statement of this century for the benefit of the orphaned children of the world?

What if this statement would gain not only national attention, but also international acclaim for the benefit of the orphaned child?

This Is What Makes Stan Run…

 This is what a Friendship run is all about

It is a vehicle that brings people together… and one step at a time, people working together can make a world of difference and a lasting impact for generations to come. Friendship is a term that crosses the cultural and political boundaries. Everyone that has ever been born desires to have a friend and to be a friend. What better way to start a life long adventure than with a child?

So true: “If you want a friend, you must first be a friend.”

Friendship Sports Association has more than 30 years of testing the theories they hold out to be true.  They are now proven.  Going into the forgotten backroads, the hedgerows, the highways of Europe, Asia, Africa, the Caribbean and South America, the experiments have  produced results that exceeded all predictions.  Herein lie the magic, the power, and the supernatural phenomenon which happens when two people begin to share their hearts, spirit, and their common roads.

How similar we all are.  It is not what is so different…but how much alike.  We are all created by the same clay; we all deal with the same themes, the same struggles… and we all hope, and all too many dread an ending of themselves.

Friendship Sports brings a message relevant to our time
of a lasting friendship which is timeless.
