Over 100 adult runners and walkers, along with kids of all ages, recently participated in the ‘Run for Hope,’ a glow-in-the-dark event to raise money for Bridges of Hope. For a complete list of finishers, visit the Run for Hope 5K results page at http://bit.ly/RFHresults.
The fourth-annual Run for Hope was held on July 23rd at the Northland Arboretum in Brainerd. Over $6,000 was raised to support Bridges of Hope, a faith-based nonprofit serving over 2,400 households annually in Crow Wing County and surrounding communities.
Prizes were awarded to the top finishers in each age group and to individuals and teams with the ‘Best Glow,’ or creative glow-in-the-dark attire. We have some great photos on our Facebook page, which you can view here.
We want to say a huge ‘thank you’ to our Presenting Sponsor for this year’s event: Wes Anderson Insurance; to this year’s ‘Glow Big or Go Home’ sponsors: Insty Prints and Nystrom & Associates; and also to the rest of our sponsors for the Run for Hope this year: we appreciate your support!
Thank you to all who had a part in making this event such a success. This event doesn’t happen without a lot of support from our community, and we are grateful and honored to reach even more individuals in the Lakes Area through the help of this fundraiser.
We are also collecting feedback from those who participated in this year’s event, as well as from those who didn’t attend the Run this year (or who never have), so that we can improve this great fundraiser in the future.
