Empowering Action 5K and 1K Kids Fun Run - Run with a Purpose and For a Purpose


Come out for a great morning of running and support the Empowering Action 5K. Registered runners will receive a male or female Tech T-Shirt. The 5K starts at 8:00 am and runs on a USATF certified course through the Seneca Creek State Park. The rolling course is a great way to start the day! Prizes for the 5K race: 1st place male and female finisher in the ten year age groups and 1st place male and female overall. At 9:15 there is a 1K Kids Fun Run.


Empowering Action (EA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that combats spiritual and physical poverty throughout the world.


Proceeds from the race will be used to fund Empowering Action’s Abundant Life Programs.  The Abundant Life 16-week church-based Poverty Reduction program uses education to empower families to overcome poverty themselves through the application of tangible skills and relevant knowledge. The program addresses all 3 pillars of The World Bank model for sustainable development: Economic growth, Environmental Stewardship, and Social inclusion, built on the foundation of the Christian Values.
