Monday, May 30th
Over the last 12 years, the Grace Race has quickly become one of Akron’s most popular and impactful community events. The goal of this event put on by Grace Church, along with the help of friends and businesses in our community, is to raise money and awareness to help feed children around the world through a partner organization called Feed My Starving Children.
This year, the Grace Race is back in person on Monday, May 30th at Copley High School! There will be a 5k race, and a one mile fun run. Join us at Copley High School on May 30th and invite everyone you know to run or walk and help feed children with every step.
3 EASY STEPS TO BE A PART OF GRACE RACE
STEP 1 – Sign Up
We encourage everyone to participate in person on Monday, May 30th to help feed as many starving kids as possible!
If you can’t make it in person you can still sign up to race anyplace. There are three different options to choose from (1 Mile Fun Run, 5K, Virtual Run).
STEP 2 – INVITE OTHERS
Don’t do it alone! Invite others to join you on race day and share the Grace Race experience together!
This year, we would also love to see people participate anywhere. So if you have family or friends who live anyplace else, make sure to invite them to participate too, because the great thing about Grace Race is that it can happen anyplace.
STEP 3 – SIGN UP FOR A PACKING EVENT
For the last 12 years, Grace Church has hosted the Grace Race, which benefits Feed My Starving Children (FMSC), a Christian non-profit organization committed to feeding God’s children hungry in body and spirit.
The approach is simple: volunteers hand-pack meals specially formulated for malnourished children, and FMSC sends them to mission partners running orphanages, schools, clinics and feeding programs around the world. FMSC food has reached nearly 70 countries in its history.
We will need over 5,000 volunteers to participate in the packing event to pack 1 million meals!
