Fourth Annual 5K Run/Walk

Posted on 2/26/2014 7:49:11 PM

The James G. Mill Center for Health and Fitness’ fourth annual 5K Run/Walk is on Saturday, April 26! The race will take place on the Hoodlebug Trail, with parking and the start of the race behind the Divine Destiny Church just off Wayne Avenue. The start time for the race will be 11:00 a.m., with race-day registration starting at 10:00 a.m.

This year’s proceeds will go to purchase soccer equipment for children in Cambodia through the Sports Gear Project of Samaritan's Purse. Find out more about this organization by visiting the Samaritan’s Purse website. For every $8, at least one piece of soccer equipment will be able to be purchased to help children and youth in Cambodia develop leadership skills while also being able to enjoy being kids.

To match the theme of another project of Samaritan’s Purse—Operation Christmas Child—we will be filling shoeboxes with all types of goodies and gift cards to raffle off on race day, so be sure to buy your tickets before the end of the race!

Refreshments will follow the race, and awards will be given for the top three in each age bracket. A free t-shirt will also be included in the membership fee as supplies last if participants are not preregistered. Those who are not current members of the fitness center will receive a discount if registered by Saturday, April 5. Early registration for all participants will guarantee a t-shirt.

Registration fees are:

  • Current members of the fitness center $15 until race day, $20 on race day
  • Nonmembers of the fitness center $18 by April 5, $20 after April

So come out and help us raise money so we can pass on our love for sports and fitness to other areas of the world! Whether you are running for an award, to beat your own personal time, or simply walking for enjoyment, we hope to see you there!
