Some people run for fun, some run for the free shirt, but on September 16, 2017, we will Run for Hope!
Bridges of Hope is honored to partner with the Nisswa Chamber of Commerce for the 5th-annual Run for Hope, as part of the 44th annual Nisswa Fall Festival and 12th annual Smokin’ Hot BBQ Challenge on Saturday, September 16, 2017.
The Run for Hope has undergone a few transformations this year! In addition to moving north to Nisswa, the Run will begin at 8:30 am–to avoid hazards from past years like swatting mosquitoes and the possibility of tripping in the dark–and a 10K run has been added, in addition to a 5K, a 2-Mile Walk and a Kids’ Dash. (Click here to register now.)
This year’s shirt is a soft (heathered) charcoal grey and features a bright blue logo, but you’re only guaranteed a shirt if you register by August 31!
In addition, the first 200 registrants will receive a limited-edition grey seamless bandana with a blue “Run for Hope” logo!
Proceeds from the Fifth-Annual Run for Hope will support work with individuals and families throughout the Brainerd Lakes Area. Last year alone, Bridges of Hope worked with over 1,600 households with concerns ranging from childcare and transportation to mental health, physical health, housing and transportation.
Finally, the Run is only successful thanks to our generous community sponsors. Click here to view a list of this year’s sponsors! Sponsorship opportunities are still available by contacting Nicholle Dean via email or by calling 218.825.7682.
