We will give out prizes and T-Shirts at the In-Person meeting of the Annual Conference on August 8th. (Time and Place TBA)

This year all of our proceeds go to NETworX USA. NETworX USA is a national movement to measurably reduce poverty at its holistic core. The strategy is based on building well-being together, rather than well-doing for others. It is individuals and communities building intentional relationships through education and love of neighbor as well as love of self. This program offers a model for building relationships across the lines that divide us (whether racial, cultural, economic) so that we can all move towards a fuller, richer life. Learn more about NETworX here. Churches and communities have been encouraged to support and be in ministry with those in NETworX initiative by both the WNCC Annual Conference and the General Conference.

Don't want to run?  That's OK! You can walk, stroll, skip, or meander your way through whatever course you have.  If you don't want to race, we still encourage you to donate to NETworX USA this year, click the "DONATE" button at the top of the page and visit our Facebook page to learn more.

Run or walk and have fun with your friends and family!
