Join us February 24, 2024 in Blue Jacket Park for our 8th annual Inua 5k to support Inua Partners in Hope.
We are looking forward to having your support and participation in the 8th annual Inua 5k to raise money for Inua Partners in Hope. Join us IN-PERSON or VIRTUALLY this year!
We are looking forward to another fun Finish Line Celebration and are excited to have LIVE music back again this year provided by the School of Rock Oviedo House band. Plan to stick around after the race to enjoy music, food, fellowship, and awards to support Inua Partners in Hope.
Over the past seven years, this event has raised over $200,000 to support Inua Partners in Hope, a program designed to break the cycle of poverty and move orphaned and vulnerable youth in Kenya from dependency to self-sufficiency. Inua Partners in Hope is a joint ministry of First United Methodist Church Winter Park and Naivasha United Methodist Church in Naivasha, Kenya. Visit our website for more information about the program: www.InuaPartners.org
NEW THIS YEAR!!
The first 200 participants to register for the in-person 5k will receive an Africa luggage tag from R. Nicolas! Tags can be picked up at packet pickup or on race day.
Plus, we are excited to offer ALL 5k participants one month of free coaching ($39 value) from Runzy.com. Runzy offers coaching to all skill levels as well as to walkers and runners alike. Learn more at www.Runzy.com.
