After many conversations, prayer, and thinking on behalf of you, our families and supporters, our 10th Annual Good Samaritan 5K Fundraiser was postponed from Oct. 8th to Oct. 22nd due to Hurricane Matthew. We are pleased to announce, $655 in registration fees and t-shirt sales were collected and designated towards our Hurricane Matthew Fund.
A special thanks to Snap Fitness and Champions Health and Fitness for their co-sponsorship of the race along with the highlighted sponsors below. It was a brisk, cool morning to celebrate 10 years of what the Lord has done through Hope of Glory Ministries with a fun and challenging course for the runner, walker, and exercise fanatic alike!
CrossFit Greenville partnered with Hope of Glory again this year to blend our Annual 5K race with Cross Training exercises and a beautiful course in Uptown Greenville. Runners had the option to run a regular 5K, walk a 5K together, or participate in the Cross Training stations guided by coaches from each sponsoring gym.
We had over 35 financial givers and 28 in-kind gifts! After all expenses, we were able to net about $8,500 in funds raised, and close to $12,000 of value in in-kind gifts. Racers received a moisture wicking t-shirt and race bag goodies valued at over $50!
Considering the rescheduling and changes, over 65 people participated in the 5K Run, Cross Training 5K, and Walk, along with about 42 volunteers who helped man the course!
Special thanks to all of our sponsors, volunteers, and participants for teaming with us to relieve burdens, empower families, and proclaim Christ throughout Pitt County!
We are eager to keep our race unique and different, so any suggestions you have please email me and share!
Thank you again for being a part of this special event and our yearly fundraiser. Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming up, so please visit our website for updates and opportunities to serve/give.
