Thank you for donating/participating for our 6th annual Outrun Hunger charity event on Saturday November 12th. It was an amazing day all the way around and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. In fact, it was a record year for our special race. Not only are we going to feed more families than ever before, we had the largest turnout of participants. This has all to do with you and your gracious efforts, so thank you! We thought you'd like to know the results, as you were a big part of making this event happen:
- 456 racers registered from our community
- 90 volunteers from our community and Grace Community Church (gotgrace.info)
- 67 donors graciously gave
- 27 sponsors supported our race
- $17,500.00+ was raised for Hospitality House in Commerce and Open Door Outreach Center in Waterford
- 877+ families in the Lakes Region will now be able to enjoy a hot meal at Thanksgiving or Christmas
Thank you for donating/participating in what has now become an annual event that is both fun AND meaningful for our community.
We pray that Outrun Hunger continues to be a charitable event that is both fun for you AND meaningful for our community. We’d love to have you join us next year, Saturday, November 11, 2017 at 10:00am. In the meantime, you can “like” us on Facebook to stay connected with the Outrun Hunger family, (facebook.com/outrunhunger).
God bless you during the upcoming holiday season.
