The staff at Hope of Glory Ministries would like to thank you for supporting us in our 17th Annual Good Samaritan 5K and Greenville’s Annual Cross Training 5K, in partnership with CrossFit Greenville! Your participation was a blessing to our staff and the many families we serve.

Together, we were able to raise over $16,000 after expenses that will help us in our mission to relieve burdens, empower families and proclaim Christ throughout our community! This event was accomplished by God’s grace, the hard work of our staff and many participants like yourself!

On race day, we had 203 participants between the 5K Run, Cross Training 5K, and Walk, along with about 60 volunteers to help man the course! We enjoyed a beautiful day and were encouraged by the many people who came out to support this event. We had a day of fun and fellowship with friends, both old and new!

Be sure to look at your race day map, which lists all the partnering sponsors that helped make the event a success! You can view the race pictures by going to our website or clicking the Shutterfly link here.

Various businesses contributed gifts for top finisher prizes at our UBE Post Race Party. The value of the race gifts-in-kind was estimated at over $5,000.00. Also on race day, anyone who brought five toiletry or household items for our co-op program received a complimentary gift card to Great Harvest Bread Company.

Lastly, we would I ike to invite you to partner with us this Christmas as we collect brand new toys for our “Empower a Family Christmas Store”. Please bring any items by the ministry between October 16th and December 1st ! You may also contribute a financial gift to support this special outreach. Please review our quarterly report and partnering opportunities on the back of this letter, then contact me with questions at 252-321-6857 ext. 201 or We also welcome you to keep up with us throughout the year by visiting our Facebook page or website at

Cat started as an intern with Hope of Glory Ministries in 2015, and with the Lord’s guidance she transitioned to Executive Director in 2020. She strives to continue to see families lives be changed and empowered through the Co-op Program and outreach events.
