To all participants,

 

On behalf of Idlewild Baptist Church and Hope 5k team, we want to offer our deepest gratitude for coming this past Saturday to support survivors of human trafficking in our community. We are thrilled to be able to share that through your participation and the generosity of our main sponsors, HOPESTREET, and IDLEWILD FOUNDATION we were able to raise $30,000.00 to be given out to Healing Root, Bridging Freedom, and Created.

 

We also want to thank Crunch Fitness for their generous contribution to the event, providing us with beautiful goodie bags, four wonderful prizes for our drawing, and cool stuff inside the goodie bags! Many of you also made personal contributions to our three featured ministries for a total of $2,000.00 and counting. You can still donate to these ministries by visiting their websites.

 

Photos and race results are now posted below. Our sincere thanks for your support, sweat and tears!

 

Save the date for our next Hope 5K & Fun Run! September 1, 2018

 

God bless you!
