Run For God 5K Challenge Class

News Flash - 9/16/2017: We just finished the summer RUN FOR GOD 5K Challenge Class with our finale run at the Totally 80’s East Pete 5K on September 16th. Not only did we all successfully finish the race, but our team also won best dressed!!


What participants of this 5K Challenge class have said:

  • When I first joined the group, I just wanted to be active and I really had no intention of actually running a 5K until the 2nd or 3rd class. The program has done a good job of lifting me up spiritually as well as physically. 
  • If I've learned anything these last 12 weeks it is commitment and perseverance along with dedication. It is also for me to be able to take care of and connect emotionally with others. Taking care of myself will be beneficial for the future, and as a single mom a help in taking care of others. 
  • It's made a difference in my life. 
  • This class filled a long-time void I had been feeling due to not being part of a small group. Now I feel connected and fulfilled!
  • I just wrapped up my first RUN FOR GOD 5K Challenge class. What an amazing experience it was this Summer!! God gave me the courage to break out of my comfort zone and become a leader at the perfect time in my life.  

If you have any level of interest in participating in a RUN FOR GOD 5K Challenge class in the spring of 2018, please sign up in the chapel or contact Travis Hess. Check out the Run for God website here.
