Easton, May 15, 2017: On May 20, Restoring Hope Ministries will host its first annual Run for Hope 5K and Family Fun Run at Scott Park. Proceeds will be donated to Restoring Hope Ministries.

Prizes will be awarded to the top male and female finishers, and the top three (3) finishers in each of the following age groups, both male and female: 15 & under, 16-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+. Registration is $25 in advance at www.RunForHope5K.org and $30 day of, which includes food and drinks after the event.

Rees Wildasin and her first-grade class learned about the importance of clean and safe water and how Restoring Hope Ministries is helping a hospital and community in Dungu, a village in the Democratic Republic of Congo, test and clean their water. Rees will be participating in the Family Fun Run and invited her classmates to join her and help carry a jerry can of water to show support for the kids in Congo carrying water long distances—something Rees and her friends often take for granted. The Family Fun Run will begin at 9:40 a.m. Registration is $10; this also includes food and drinks after the event and a Kids Grab Bag. The Chick-fil-A Cow will be making an appearance as well. Participants must be 12 & under to participate in the Family Fun Run.

CMTS Ministries, Get Fed – Cornerstone Catering, Valor Independent Group, and Lifestyle Realty Group are Gold Sponsors. Restoring Hope Ministries would like to thank the generous support of the Run for Hope 5K sponsors.
