All of the proceeds go to benefit The Way Training Center. The Way Training Center operates a Christian discipleship-training program to train and equip people with life-controlling issues (i.e. drug addiction, gambling problems, alcohol addiction). We empower individuals to become an asset to their community. Training takes place through hands-on vocational training, character development classes, and a healthy support group.

We would like to encourage everyone to participate in this event! Of course, the serious runner is welcome. There will be medals and trophies, by all means. But these races are about more than just winning. We would like even the non-athlete to come out and walk. Remember, a 5k is not 5 miles. It’s actually just over 3 miles. Walking at a comfortable, but brisk pace, you can easily complete it in 45 minutes. And one mile can be walked (for most people) in as little as 15 minutes. Come out and have fun with your family and friends. Talk. Sing. Laugh. Encourage each other. Push the babies in the stroller. Hold your daughter’s hand. It’s what the good stuff of life is made of!
