KID’S CLUB RUN-A-THON

 

What is the Kid’s Club Run-a-Thon?

In 2017 I started running for health reasons. It became an addiction to achieve goals I had set and to become a heathier person all around. Early in 2018 I began feeling guilty for the amount of time I was putting into running which was for self centered reasons. I began to pray about it and the Lord put it on my heart to turn my running into a way to glorify Him. “So how can I do that?”, I asked myself. Then the idea of Kid’s Club Run-a-Thon hit me.

The Kid’s Club Run-a-Thon turned into an opportunity to raise money to help support this wonderful community outreach program held at the church every Wednesday after school. There are usually around 100 kids a week that attend. They teach young people about Jesus and how to live for Him following His teachings. Children ride a bus straight from school to the church to participate in games, bible stories, and crafts.

The Run-a-Thon consisted of 12 racing events that accumulated miles towards the end of the race season. All the races were sponsored by people of the church. A dozen pledges came in from individuals in and out of the church family. They pledged to donate a certain amount of money per mile, which were accumulated during the race season, and were to be paid to Kid’s Club when the races were all completed.
