If You Build It, They Will Run 5K/1 Mile Fun Run has been benefiting our community since 2001. Participants enjoy running this scenic route through the beautiful countryside surrounding our church. At the end of the race, refreshments, music, trophies and door prizes are offered.
Since 2001, this fun event has raised over $50,000 for various charitable causes in our community. In recent years, we've raised money for Happy 2 Be Home, a non-profit organization that enables families to provide a suitable home environment for children with chronic, long term, multiple disabilities to enhance their quality of life.
Happy 2 Be Home was inspired by Charlotte and Nathan, two children from our church.
Charlotte became ill in 2009 at age 7 with a rare disease. In order for Charlotte to live at home, renovations to the home were required, and many friends rallied with financial support. Nathan, who also lives with a rare disease, needed improved facilities to support his needs at home, and once again financial support was provided.
After becoming aware of the financial struggles facing families with children who have long-term medical needs, friends of Charlotte and Nathan founded Happy 2 Be Home.
