After a long winter, are you ready to put something exciting on your calendar? Are you ready to give yourself a challenge? We are!
ON SITE RUN: April 24 9am Greenford Campus Bldg E
VIRTUAL RUN: Times submitted between March 28 – April 24
Reach for Hope 5k is a race to promote encouragement and inspiration. Participants of all levels are welcome, and we’re even offering a virtual option if you’d prefer the comfort of your own neighborhood. As an added challenge, we’ll be trying to fill our box truck with canned goods. (BONUS COMPETITION: Whoever brings the most canned goods wins a gift certificate to Second Sole for NEW running shoes, up to $200 value!) EVERY household/runner will receive a unique yard sign, finisher medal and goodie bag.
NOT A RUNNER? No problem! You can still participate by taking part in our BRCOH Food Drive on the following day, Sunday, April 25, by bringing canned goods to Greenford Christian Church’s Greenford or Austintown Campus. Visit GCC’s website for details on service times and locations.
Help us fill our box truck! Canned Soups & Vegetables, Canned Fruit, Peanut Butter, Jelly or Applesauce are the most needed items this Spring.
A Special Note on 2021’s Reach for Hope 5k,
We’re so excited for this fun and safe way to get outdoors, raise funds, collect canned goods, and support the mission of Big Reach Center of Hope (BRCOH). At BRCOH, we are blessed to be a neighborhood ministry “Helping individuals & families in crisis experience life-changing hope.” We want this race to mean as much to you as it does to us! That is why you’ll notice a few changes to this year’s event.
Over the past year, we have drastically adjusted our operations to maintain a safe, weekly, outdoor food distribution for recipients in our tri-county area. Through God’s provision, donor support, community partners, and our selfless team of volunteers…community food distribution has remained a strong BRCOH program! However, we need your help to continue providing recipients with great products and new and engaging programs.
In lieu of sponsorships requests, race t-shirt orders, and multiple prizes, we are asking all participants and donors to consider what they might contribute in addition to, or in place of a registration fee for this event. As a part of our community, we hope that you’ll partner with us through prayer, a donation of canned goods, monthly support, or perhaps you’d like to connect with us as a volunteer! Thank you for challenging yourself with this race & this partnership! However you join us in our mission, please remember… you are loved, you are needed and you are valued!
His peace and blessings,
Director, Big Reach Center of Hope
