Romans 12:4-5 (NLT)

4 Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, 5 so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other.

In 2014, CRU@CVCC's Run of the Mill benefitted Housing Visions of Catawba.  Past recipients include the Council On Adolescents of Catawba County, Safe Harbour Rescue Mission, the Rape Crisis Center of Catawba County and ACTION kivu, an international organization that helps women in the Congo.  Last year's event was our largest ever and attracted over 200 participants!  An impressive sum was raised for Housing Visions of Catawba!  We hope this year's Run of the Mill will be even bigger!  Hope to see you there!
