Description

The Race to Zero 5K is a fundraising event for the Above & Beyond Missions Foundation. Why Zero? Because Above & Beyond is focused on eradicating spiritual poverty globally. Everyone should have the opportunity to hear the message of God’s incredible love.

Above & Beyond helps people earn a portion of their mission trip fee by rewarding them for volunteering in their local community.   Proceeds from The Race to Zero will support the SERVE LOCAL GO GLOBAL scholarship fund.

Since 2011, 735 Above & Beyond recipients have invested over 10,500 volunteer hours at nearly 250 non-profits before sharing the love of God with people in 66 nations.

As part of our Serve Local Go Global concept, everyone who registers is asked to bring 1 canned good for Loaves & Fishes.
