The Open Door Classic 5k walk and run to end poverty has raised approximately $80,000 to date with more gifts coming in every day! It was a beautiful day, and we had approximately 500 walkers, runners and volunteers “move to end poverty” and raise awareness of the needs of our neighbors who live in poverty and funds to address those needs—all for the ministries of Open Door Community House.
Congratulations to our award winners!
Pierce Chapel had the most participants with 215 walkers alone!
St. Luke raised the most money to end poverty at $16,740 (with more gifts expected!)
St. Luke School won the spirit award for demonstrating the most enthusiasm. Pictured also are the winners of the Fun Run: 1st, Aaron Dozier; 2nd, Oliver Pendleton; and 3rd, Jake Copeland.
Upatoi UMC won the David and Goliath Award once again for a smaller church who represented in a big way.
John Martin won the award for the individual who raised the most money—almost $11,000! He won the coveted gift certificate from Epic.
We are grateful to all who volunteered, ran, walked, raised funds for us or made a donation. Many thanks to each one of you!
