Run For Young 5K
PAST DATES AND TIMES
- Sunday, January 7, 2018 2pm - 3pm
LOCATION: Christ Episcopal Church - 120 E Edenton St
Run for Young, a great family event for the young and young at heart, is a USATF certified 5k run/walk planned and managed by Christ Church youth. The race honors the memory of Sadiki Young, a Christ Church member and acolyte, who was a senior at Wakefield High School when he died as the passenger in an alcohol-related accident in 2007. In 2008 the Run for Young was founded by Christ Church youth as a way to both honor the memory of Sadiki and raise awareness of safe driving methods for local teens. Today, a percentage of the proceeds goes to local high schools with high participation numbers in the race for safe driving education programs. The remainder goes to the Christ Church Youth Ministry Endowment Fund, which grants funds and scholarships to Christ Church youth and young adults for community projects, retreats, and events.
