Welcome to Outrun Hungers 7th annual 5k and 1 mile run/walk charity race. Grace Community Church of Commerce is partnering with Hospitality House of Commerce and Open Door Outreach Center of Waterford to raise $18,000 and feed 900 Lakes Region families this holiday season.
Did you know that a family of four can enjoy a hot meal during the holidays with a contribution of only $20.00? Pantry directors Donovan (Hospitality House) and Karen (Open Door Outreach Center), gave these statistics........ approximately 1,271 families and 3,151 individuals walked through their doors in need of food during November and December 2016... the “demand” often overwhelms the “supply.” They need our help and 100% of your registration/donation, (excluding online transaction fee), will go back to our community for those in need.
After warming up with fresh coffee from Biggby and Zumba, (sponsored by Body Language Fitness), the race will take place on the scenic Commerce Commons Pathway, the trail is just outside the Commerce Township Hall, (8600 PGA Drive Commerce, MI).
The race is chip timed by Michigan Running Foundation and awards are sponsored by New Balance Detroit and local businesses/restaurants. Awards are presented for Overall M/F, Overall Master M/F, Overall Grand Master M/F and 1st place M/F ages 5-9, 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-80 plus.
After the race re-fuel with Arbonne's recovery drink, Leo's hot oatmeal, fresh fruit, yogurt, granola bars, and fresh baked goods from local bakeries. Enjoy a delicious treat from Dairy Queen or a good stretch from DMC Sports Medicine, (additional sponsors are listed on our website), www.outrunhunger.org.
The community loves this race. Join us to see why and help us impact lives. We hope to see you there! Like us and see our posts/photos on facebook: www.facebook.com/outrunhunger.
