FHI is hosting a 5k Fun Run/Walk fundraiser at 9 am on August 11, 2018. All proceeds will benefit FHI which is a missions organization dedicated to helping the poor, orphans, and children. We currently have projects in Africa that need immediate attention as we care for 30 children left orphaned from the war in South Sudan. These projects include construction for a larger home base as well as placement of children into loving homes and families. Ongoing needs include housing, medical care, education, clothing, and food at a minimum. 

We have a 5k and a shorter run for the kids or those wanting a shorter distance (Little Monkey Run). Wear your animal print, get outside, get fit, and support a good cause!

FREE Tshirt & Medal with entry. Prizes for top finishers!

Early bird price of $25 for 5k til Aug 1 and $15 for Little Monkey Run.

For more information about FHI or to get involved, email teresa@vfministries.com.  Donations over and above entry fee may be tax deductible.
