Westminster’s Service Leadership Team is sponsoring our annual 5K Run/Walk in order to raise money for the Lamb of God School in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This money will go towards supporting several hundred orphans and their caretaker families with food and school fees. Please consider bringing family and friends so that we can make a bigger impact on the lives of these children!
The cost of the race is $25. This year the theme is a Hawaiian Color Run and leashed dogs are welcome! Parking is free. Space will be available at Westminster and at J.W. Terrill on Maryville Centre Drive.
Register online before Friday, April 20 at 6 p.m. or in the Student Life Office. We will accept walk-ups the day of the race, but you will not be guaranteed a race t-shirt.
The official rainout date is Saturday, May 5 at 9 a.m. For now, the race is on and the weather forecast looks good (but cold!). However, if anything changes, we will post an update on our website or Facebook page by Friday at 3:30 p.m.
Here are a few reminders for Saturday:
If you did not register by last April 13, you are not guaranteed a race t-shirt.
Prizes will be awarded for the following:
Best dressed in our Hawaiian theme
1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers
Due to the cold weather predicted we will be serving up hot chocolate along with some bagels and fruit.
You do NOT have to go through our two color lanes. If you’d like to opt out, you can run outside the lane. 🙂 If you are going through the color lanes, we recommend you wear sunglasses!
Friendly and leashed dogs are welcome as long as they are picked up after. Please make sure they are up to date on their shots!
See you on Saturday! Questions? Contact Ashley Woodall.
