After close consultation with our partners at the Gathering Place, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our Race for an Orphan 5K that was scheduled on May 30th due to COVID-19. (For updated information on how our children’s homes are handling this pandemic, visit boazproject.org/urgentneed )

Our new race date is Saturday, October 3, 2020.

Race for an Orphan is a 5k walk/run benefiting The Boaz Project that supports orphans from Russia, India, and Kenya. The race is open to people of all ages and abilities. A one-mile option is available for those with small children!

Come join the excitement as you run with hundreds of others with professional chipped timing as well as a variety of activities for the family.

During and after the race we will have an indoor Family Fun Fest where there will be face painting, balloon animals, bounce houses, and carnival games.

A band will be playing music throughout the race and after during the post race celebration.

Strollers and pets are allowed in the race, we just ask that you start at the back of the starting group.

Please Note: Availability of the race shirt is not guaranteed.
