Midway UMC is excited about our rapidly growing 6th annual 5K run/walk, which will take place in October 2017.
This popular event benefits several different mission partners each year. In 2016, the beneficiaries included:
- The United Methodist Children’s Home: established in 1871 to care for children orphaned during the Civil War. They continue this mission today by placing children into safe and loving foster care homes while helping to restore family relationships; prepare young adults who are still in Georgia’s foster care system to make positive life decisions and become more productive citizens; and strengthen and preserve families, including by providing housing and support to families at risk of homelessness.
- Zion Children’s Home: located on Current Island in The Bahamas, seeks to provide a safe sanctuary for the growth of children who have been neglected or abused in The Bahamas. The home and its affiliates seek to provide an atmosphere and programming whereby the abused and neglected Bahamian children can safely be nurtured as they are encouraged in their spiritual, emotional, intellectual, social and physical growth.
- Living Hope Uganda: a charitable organization operating in Uganda with the mission of changing lives, transforming communities through education, evangelism, church planting, empowering sustainable skills to youth and women, alleviating poverty among poor household families, and feeding and housing children.
Individual contributions are important, yet simple: recruit as many team members as possible to register/attend the event, with a goal of a minimum of 5.
Potential teammates are all around: family, friends, co-workers, Sunday school classmates, sports team members, people you know from the gym, etc. All you need to do is ask them to help support our mission of caring for those in need locally and around the world!
Contact Craig Hawkins or 404-641-4808 with any questions.
Contributions and Sponsorships will help to offset the costs of hosting the event, thus resulting in more resources being dedicated to the missions work. Our goal is to use 100% of the proceeds from the event to go directly to The United Methodist Children’s Home, Zion Children’s Home and Living Hope.
Please contact our Sponsorship Coordinator, Jeff Behrhorst with any questions you may have.
