Medical Ministries International is a Central California non-profit organization that obtains donated, surplus medical equipment, supplies, and medicines and ships them to less advantaged clinics and hospitals all over the world. This medical surplus that would otherwise end up in American landfills is transported by MMI in order to bring hope and health to people in need. In addition, MMI volunteer travel teams hold primary care clinics in various regions where medical care is unavailable. MMI has provided assistance to India, Haiti, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Mexico, Armenia, Columbia, Laos, Fiji, South Africa, Indonesia, Honduras, Ethiopia, and the Philippines.
The M*A*S*H Team (Medical Aid Supplying Hope) exists to support the work of Medical Ministries International. Participants on M*A*S*H Teams raise funds for MMI while training for and completing various marathon and half marathon events. M*A*S*H first trained a team for the 2008 Eye-Q Two Cities Marathon and Half Marathon (in Fresno and Clovis, CA). Since then, M*A*S*H has sent teams to the St. George Marathon, two more Eye-Q Two Cities events, the Napa Valley Marathon, and Fresno's Shinzen 10 Miler. All told, over 200 runners and walkers on M*A*S*H Teams have successfully crossed the finish line.
The M*A*S*H Team is now preparing for the inaugural Fresno Classic Half Marathon, and the 2011 Two Cities Marathon and Half Marathon.

Together, we can advance MMI’s mission and help ensure that many more in our global family will receive the care that they so desperately need.
Thank you for your support!
