Events for this Race:
Vilonia, AR US 72173
The starting pistol will fire at 8:00 AM on April 20, 2013 to begin the first annual Vilonia K-Life 5K. The Vilonia High School chapter of Fellowship of Christian Athletes is sponsoring this race, with all proceeds to benefit the new K-Life Ministry in Vilonia, Arkansas. Packet pickup and race day registration will be from 6:45-7:45 am on April 20 at the Vilonia High School football stadium.
K-Life is a community-wide, interdenominational Christian ministry of discipleship and fellowship for youth and their families. Through a variety of activities (weekly clubs, small group Bible studies, mission trips, ski trips, and monthly events), K-Life kids grow in their faith and have lots of fun in the process. They learn that following Christ and discovering His plan for their life is the most exciting adventure of all and that they can count on friendship and support from leaders and peers who care.
K-Life works alongside churches and families in the community to teach and encourage kids to be strong in the Lord in spite of all the negative pressures they face as teenagers. K-Life networks kids from different churches, and those without a church affiliation, to build positive, Godly relationships that can withstand the negative peer pressure so prevalent in today's youth culture.
The heartbeat of K-Life lies in the ability to build relationships with kids and bring the content of God's word to bear on those relationships. Our desire is that kids would choose to participate in one of our small groups led by our staff and volunteer leaders. The purpose of these groups is for kids to gain a greater knowledge of God's word, build Godly relationships with peers, and have access to a mentoring leader to come alongside them as they navigate those difficult adolescent years. Supporting and surrounding our small group strategy are the more visible components of our ministry: weekly club meetings, activities, events, and retreats. Weekly meetings consist of songs, games, skits, and talks that contain a lesson with a relevant life application from the Bible.
Don't let the fact this is a new race scare you away. We have motivated race directors, a (soon-to-be) USATF certified course, a great technical shirt, and plenty of volunteers all mobilized to give you a great race experience and to raise money for a great cause!
