Run for Grace 5K
It's time for our 6th Annual Run for Grace 5K!!!
We are gearing up for our 6th Annual 5K Run for Grace, to be held on Saturday, April 30th, 2022!
As you know, we postponed our normal August 2021 race due to pandemic-driven concerns for the health and safety of our runners and helpers. So we are delighted to be able to hold an actual race this year. Proceeds will once again benefit the Workshop of Davidson, which serves developmentally and intellectually disabled individuals in Davidson County by giving them a safe place to train, work, and grow in their vocational and personal lives. The Workshop has seen their funding reduced over the years, so PRC wanted to help fill the gap. And, once again, we are asking for your help to make this another successful fundraiser for The Workshop. We are seeking financial assistance, such as donations of money for sponsorships and prizes, goodie-bag giveaway items, snacks and other items for our runners. And of course, we pray to be able to do even better this year. But we need your help.
If you'd like to walk or run in this year's 5K, you can sign up online at:
Or you can download our brochure, print out and fill in the registration form, and mail it and your check to the church as shown in the brochure:
But we also need sponsors, lots of sponsors. We need folks and businesses who are willing to help the Workshop stay open by sponsoring the 5K run with donations of anywhere from $2500 to $100! And we need some giveaways, for the goodie bags we give our runners. These can be promotional items, discount coupons, or anything of that nature. If you know of someone who may be willing to sponsor this year's run, please download and print these two forms and hand them to that person or business:
