Beaverton graduate Ryan Menten is accepting donations to help defray the costs of his travels with the 2006 Athletes in Action North American Fall Tour Team. Menten is travelling through five states and Canada from October 14 through November 11 with the AIA mens' basketball team, beginning with a one-week training camp in Xenia, Ohio, home of the AIA's International Headquarters.
The team will then travel through Ohio, Indiana and Illinois to compete against small college basketball teams, conduct clinics, lead Bible meetings and share the love and truth of Jesus Christ through basketball.
In order for Menten to participate as a member of the team, he needed to raise approximately $2300 to cover his involvement and expenses in the ministry. He is seeking gifts of $50, $100, $200 or another amount. For tax purposes, checks can be made payable to 'Athletes in Action' or 'Campus Crusade for Christ' and mailed to Ryan C. Menten, 6173 S.E. Sierra St., Hillsboro, OR 97070.
