ABOUT THE RACE

We are excited to announce our 4th Annual 5k Run/ 1 Mile Walk to benefit Asifiwe Child Care Ministries, a non-profit organization caring for orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children in Uganda. "As Asifiwe, we believe that Africa’s greatest resource is its children. We desire to cultivate this resource through providing a loving family, an education with academic and practical life skills, medical care, as well as spiritual and emotional support. We believe that the love of Christ is able to transform their lives and heal the pain of their past. We believe that Jesus will raise them up to become young men and women who will change their society and break the cycle of poverty and hopelessness." More about this ministry can be learned at http://asifiwechildcare.org/ Our goal this year is to raise $25,000 for the growing needs of Asifiwe! ***This year we will be offering a VIRTUAL CHALLENGE as well as our IN PERSON EVENT in Tyler State Park. Due to the park safety guidelines, this year our In Person Event is limited to 200 participants. This number may change due to state and local regulations- please see below for further information.*** For the In Person Event at Tyler: The 5k loop will start and end at Tyler Park's Center for the Arts, and take you on a scenic loop so beautiful that you just might forget about the hills! Prizes will be awarded to the top three overall male and female finishers. There won't be any hills on the fun walk, but an optional extension has been added after receiving feedback from previous year's event. All registrants will receive a raffle ticket and be entered to win one of several gift baskets/gift cards on event day!
