72 Miles… becomes Miles for Freedom


New name same great cause!

Changing the name to Miles for Freedom is our way to include more people in the mission to bring awareness and funding to ministries that support the restoration and freedom of people. 72 was the number of miles Gentry was called to complete for the estimated 27 million trapped in human slavery, but we have always had people joining the cause with the number of miles they felt compelled to complete. Our hope is that you will not be intimidated by a number of miles rather be encouraged to join our adventure to free people from bondage.

New for 2014: Sports Expos and Event Dates

The first two freedom events will offer the maximum distance of 27 miles and we will finish the year strong with our original 72 mile adventure at the Midwest Outdoor Experience with a potential of reaching 20,000 people! Registration for Atlanta will open in January and for both Dayton events in February.
