Description

 5th Annual Run For Grace 5k hosted by Pilgrim Reformed Church in Lexington, NC. Funds raised by this event will financially aid the Workshop of Davidson in Lexington.

The Workshop of Davidson is a place where individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities can work, gain vocational and life skill training, interact with their peers and integrate into the community and most importantly, have the opportunity to reach their highest potential. The Workshop focuses on “ability” and not necessarily, the disability. Program participants are given the chance to not only grow but to flourish as a human being.

Walking or running strollers are allowed but must not be in front of running participants at the start of the race. Children under 13 years of age must be accompanied/supervised by an adult.


Race results will be posted online and onsite as participants crosses the finish line. Light refreshments will be available to race participants at completion of event.

For more information, please contact Tina Poindexter @ 336-247-1078 or Tammy Allen @ 336-596-6695 or Rev. Richard Moore 336-425-5610 or email runforgrace1@gmail.com.
