2012 will be marked as Gracepoint Gospel Fellowship’s first annual 5K fun run/walk. This race is specifically dedicated in loving memory of our own Janet Martinez, who went to be with our Lord on June 10th of this year. Janet’s love for running and biking is the spark that ignited this 5K! Not only do we want to honor her in this way, but we also want to encourage fitness and raise money for a good cause too!
Proceeds will go to building a classroom in Tanzania, Africa. We are hoping to raise $5000, which is enough to build one classroom. These kids need a place to have the chance to learn and grow! If we get more than $5000, we will build more classrooms! The race registration fee is a low $17. to cover costs and we are also suggesting a donation of at least $25 to go toward the Tanzania classroom project if you are able. Donations are tax deductible and should be made out to “Gracepoint Gospel Fellowship” with a memo of “5K Run”. You may bring donations to the race with you or submit/send to Gracepoint at any other time as well.
This officially timed 5K race will be held at Rockland Lake State Park, 94 Lake Road, Congers, NY, 10920. Park in Parking Lot #1! The 5K route at Rockland Lake is flat and stays along the lake, offering beautiful views the entire way. Rockland Lake is also a great place for families to come picnic and stay a while. There is plenty of parking but if you come after 8am, you will have to pay an $8 parking fee. Before 8am parking is free! At 7:30am we will begin handing out registered racer’s bibs and tees and registering any last minute people as well. The race starts at 9am for runners and 9:15am for walkers.
