2019 Inaugural 5K/1Mile Run, Walk, or Roll

5K Logo.png
 
​Please join us for our inaugural race! Proceeds from this fundraiser go towards program costs for our local Young Life clubs, start up expenses for new clubs, and helping kids have life-changing experiences at one of our Young Life camps. Middle and high school students, college students, and students who happen to have special needs are able to get away from the pressures of everyday life, have adventure and fun with friends and Young Life leaders, and hear the message of God's love in terms they can understand. 

Money should never be the reason kids miss out on the best time of their lives. Young Life is committed to raising money for this cause and helping give kids ownership of their trips.
