Is Your Race Bag Packed for Our 5K?

Is Your Race Bag Packed for Our 5K?

September 16, 2019

Is your racing bag packed? Our 2ndannual OutRun Hunger 5k Family Walk/Run will take place on Saturday, Sept. 28, and we can’t do it without you!

We’re sprinting toward the finish line but there is still time to sign up. The money raised will benefit East Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry, a local non-profit that provides assistance to families and individuals during times of temporary financial crisis.

The race starts with an 8:30 a.m. kids’ run at the Farmhouse, 3400 Harvest Corner Drive, followed by a family 5K race at 9 a.m. A DJ, bounce houses, food trucks and more await at the finish line.

Last year, we raised $13,500 for local families living in East Fort Bend County. This year we’ve already surpassed our goal of raising $15,000 but with your help, we can raise even more!

Fees are $25 for adults and $15 for youths. Virtual runner registration is available for $25. Participants can register online.

Looking for an event for your business to sponsor? We’ve got three levels available! Bronze sponsorships are $100, silver are $300, gold are $500 and platinum sponsorships are $1,000. Sponsors receive free race entries and their company logo or family name will be printed on the race T-shirt.

Roots magazine, EFBHNM Board of Directors and PACE Mechanical are this year’s platinum sponsors. Gold sponsors include Children’s Lighthouse, Newmark Homes and Earthcare Management.

Newmark Homes also will be underwriting the cost of the medals and ribbons. Messina Hof, which is building a wine room and restaurant in the community, is providing wine at the finish line.

Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry is also asking everyone who walks, runs or cheers to bring non-perishable food donations.

We’ll see you on race day!
