The first annual Foundations for Hope 5K is in the books and it was a huge success! We are excited to announce that through this event, the life changing resource of clean water will be provided to 10 new villages where thousands of lives will be impacted by the Gospel!
Not only were we able to exceed our goals in the funding of new wells, but the community came together to bring awareness to an amazing cause. Runners in our Jerry Can Relay carried up to 43 pounds of water over three miles to bring awareness to the challenges women in Africa face daily. Runners of all ages and skill levels ran their race well, and families came to walk the course together. It was a great day, and we cannot wait for next year!
We want to thank each of our sponsors, volunteers, and all who participated on race day. We have witnessed the Lord take the resources, talents, and time of each participant and multiply them into something amazing! Below are just a few images from the race that we hope you will enjoy!
A special thank you to our sponsors: Engineering Design Group, Fluid Solutions, Caddell Construction, Southern Grain Woodworks, SPOC Automation, The Prewitt Group, First Baptist Church Trussville, 4Africa, Voight-Abernathy, Southern Outdoor Design, A+ Tire & Auto Repair, and M3 Endeavors.
