Running for Relief 5K Run/Walk
1K Kid's Fun Run
Saturday, April 11, 2015
THE CAUSE: During the past nine years, over $35,000 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, HopeKids, UT, the Wounded Warriors Project, and the Utah/Southern Idaho Multiple Sclerosis Society.
THIS YEAR (2015): Proceeds were divided between between the relief efforts with the Missions Committee of Christ United Methodist Church and Team Kid Courage, an organization dedicated to helping children with disabilities participate in sporting and other active events notwithstanding their physical limitations.
