An Encouraging Word from
OutRun's Race Director
Hi everyone! My name is Gina, and I have the privilege serving as the Race Director for LifePoint Church's OutRun Homelessness 5K and Fun Run. On behalf of the entire leadership team, I just wanted to let you know that we are so excited about what God did last year through this event, and we are just as excited about what He is going to do this year.
If this is your first time to participate in our race or if you are coming back to join us this year, I wanted to take this opportunity to remind us all of the purpose of this event. We are raising funds to give to several local organizations that serve the hurting, helpless, hopeless and homeless in Collin County. While providing basic needs, these organizations also offer hope and encouragement. We are raising awareness of homelessness in Collin County in our efforts to eradicate it. So that’s the position of my heart while working on the race, when asking for a volunteer or when asking a potential sponsor. I'm remembering all the people our efforts will impact.
I encourage you to do the same...remember the purpose of this event when asking a friend or family member to register, when asking a business to become a sponsor or when you are participating in the event itself…remember the lives that will be touched.
I was hoping we could make a goal as a church family to all get at least just one.... just one person to register for the race and one sponsor. Think about that for a moment...if we all can get just one, think of the impact we can make in our community. Let's step it up and get at least just one!
The OutRun Homelessness Leadership Team is very excited and we hope you are too. Please be praying for us as we meet, plan, organize and work together to ensure this is a successful event.
Most of all, we are looking forward to OutRunning homelessness in Collin County with you on March 21! It’s not too late to register, volunteer, or sponsor! Don't forget to "like" our OutRun Facebook page where we post news, tips, race updates, and more.
All for God's Glory!
