Run for the people of Haiti during the 5th annual Run For The Island 5K! Set in beautiful 370 Lakeside Park in St. Peters, MO, the 5K Run and 1Mile walk benefits God's Ministry in LaGonave, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization that serves the physical, spiritual, and medical needs of the residents in the remote village of Belle-Vie on the island of LaGonave, Haiti. How much do your miles matter? Over the last four years, this race has funded the construction of a 5 room school house which serves over 200 children, a reservoir for the provision of clean drinking water and a beautiful church for worship! Because of these developments, the school has also been blessed with a feeding program for the children through Feed My Starving Children which began with the 2014/2015 school year! Many thanks go out to Feed My Starving Children!! After the Run, enjoy post race refreshments and bagels from St. Louis Bread Company as well as an exciting charity raffle! Last year's prizes included a 55" Samsung Smart TV, Apple Watch Sport, Maui Jim sunglasses, Wine Basket from Missouri Mercantile, and a variety of gift certificates. This year promises to be just as exciting! Please go to www.haitifunrun.com for the 2016 list of raffle prizes. Raffle tickets may be purchased through Sharon Olwig at sharonolwig@yahoo.com, at World Wide Technology, Inc., or on race day. The drawing will take place immediately following the race.
