Running for Relief 5K Run/Walk
1K Kid's Fun Run
Saturday, April 11, 2015 - SAVE THE DATE!
THE CAUSE: During the past nine years, over $29,000 has been donated to various relief efforts. The main benefactor of the annual 5K Run is the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). Through UMCOR proceeds have been used to aid relief efforts in Japan, Haiti, the Congo, Women in Development, Darfur, the Phillipines, and the Sudan. Race proceeds have also been donated to both local and international organizations such as Hopekids, UT, the Wounded Warrior Project, the Utah Food Bank, Huntsman Cancer Institute, Volunteers of America's Homeless Youth Resource Center (SLC), the Fisher House (SLC), the Ronald Mc Donald House, Central Asia Institute, and the Utah/Southern Idaho Multiple Sclerosis Society.
THIS YEAR (2014): Proceeds were divided between UMCOR (paying part of salary of a registered nurse in Liberia who provides counseling for PTSD), the Wounded Warriors Project, and HopeKids UT, an organization that provides support and activities for families of children with cancer and other life-threatening conditions.
Thanks to our 2014 sponsors: Furst Construction, SWC Healthworks, Mitchell Acoustics, the Pie Pizzeria, Reser Fine Foods, Handstands, Medical Center Pharmacy, Great Harvest Bread, and Goal Zero
