Run For the Love It is a 5K run/walk for our community to promote fitness and unity while raising funds that will go toward helping those who need it most in our village of Agua Zarca where The Connection Church is serving. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for a morning that was filled with fun as we ran together with a group of over 200 participants. On top of that, we enjoyed a kids dash, lots of healthy snacks prepared by our volunteers, bounce houses for the kids, and our very own DJ Raul! This was a collective group effort as over 100 additional volunteers showed up and showed out! We gave awards and prizes to the fastest runners, including the overall winner of the day, Collin Bond, who came in at just over 17 minutes!
All of this happened under the skilled leadership of Angela Gilbert. Angela has a huge heart for missions and the admin/organizational skills to pull off such a super-successful event! We know her desire is that God gets all the glory and that’s exactly what we’re going to do! Angela, we so proud to have you on our team! You are this week’s Most Valuable Player!
