First Baptist will be gathering a team for the Habitat for Humanity Hammerbird 5K and One Mile Run/Walk on March 23 at 8:30am! Sponsored by our Outreach Ministry Team, all are invited to join as runners, walkers, and folks who want to staff our tent that day. If you’d like to participate as a runner or walker, sign up to join our First on Fifth team at the following link: https://runsignup.com/
Race/Register/RaceGroup- 572873?raceId=42767. You can also go to the Habitat website at http://habitatforsyth.org and select the First on Fifth team as you register. Registration fees are $25 for the Hammerbird 5K, and $15 for the Hammerbird One Mile Fun Run/Walk. Costs increase after March 1, so sign up now!
If you’d like to join several Outreach Team members in staffing our First Baptist tent, we’d love for folks to do so! We’ll be handing out treats for the race participants, as well as information and fun giveaways from the church, and will be engaging the folks there to tell the story of FBC. You can sign up in the Commons hallway to come and participate!
This unique race gives participants a chance to see first-hand the Boston-Thurmond neighborhood, where Habitat for Humanity has built, remodeled or repaired more than 210 houses since 1985. Runners and walkers begin and end the 5K at Kimberley Park Elementary School, where a number of children from Habitat families are past or current students.
We’re excited to move our bodies, fellowship together, and share the story of FBC with our community! Come and be a part!
