Lee University’s Dr. William Lamb ran the Marine Corps Marathon on Sunday in Washington, D.C., to raise funds for Backyard Ministries and Serving Paraguay. 

“This is my third Marine Corps Marathon,” said Dr. Lamb, director of Lee’s Leonard Center. “I am thankful for the opportunity to run for these great causes, and I appreciate the donor support to help us reach our goal of $15,000 to complete this project.” 

Backyard Ministries Tutoring is a weekly program that goes to two different locations in the Cleveland area. It strives to tutor, mentor, and provide good role models for children growing up in underprivileged communities. 

According to Dr. Lamb, the money raised will be used to convert a school bus into a mobile classroom. Backyard is often subject to weather due to the lack of a covered tutoring space. Canceling on bad-weather days can impede the long-term effectiveness of the program. 

“It’s been amazing to see Backyard grow,” said Elizabeth Sanders, a senior at Lee. “The four years that one spends with the kids getting closer to them is so rewarding. Consistency is key in this program.” 

In addition to fundraising for Backyard, Dr. Lamb is also supporting Serving Paraguay, which is a mission organization led by Lee alums Shaun and Sara Morton. 

Dr. Lamb has been at Lee since 2002. Prior to coming to Lee, he served as a youth minister and served in the United States Marine Corp. He is the co-author of “Answers to Questions Youth Workers, Parents, and Pastors Ask.”
