Come out to Living Waters Church to enjoy a fun day of exercise while working to eradicate child sex trafficking. The Fourth Annual Run 4 The Cause, a 5k Fun Run & Walk, benefits Christy’s Cause, a nonprofit organization which has a heart for helping child victims of sex trafficking.
Run 4 The Cause will include a competitive, timed 5k run and a relaxing non-timed walk. The 5k happens at 7:30 a.m., followed by an awards ceremony at 8:15 a.m., where the top overall male and female runners, top boys and girls (age 6-12), and top males and females in each age group will receive medals.
At 9 a.m., the walk begins. Walkers will have opportunities to win prize giveaways as they enjoy a leisurely stroll. During the event, Starbucks will be serving complimentary coffee and tea. There will also be a variety of local food vendors.
Online registration is $35; race day registration will be $40. For families or groups, each additional participant will receive a $5 discount.
Last year, Run 4 The Cause raised over $50,000; the goal for this year is $60,000 and 500 participants.
