Running for Hope 5K (+ a giveaway!)

Now that I’m officially a 10K finisher, it’s of course time to start thinking about “What’s Next” as far as my running goes. Since my training didn’t go quite as planned, I’m holding off on doing any more 10Ks for a while, but I’m still wanting to do at least a 5K or two (it’s on my 25 before 25 list!). I was approached by one of the organizers for the Running For Hope 5K race coming up at the end of June and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to do that 5K I’ve been wanting to do!

Running for Hope is an annual race in which all proceeds are donated directly to a charity. We will be running together to show hope to those in need across the globe. This year the selected charity is Love Without Boundaries (LWB). Last year was the inaugural race & had almost 200 participants and raised almost $7000 – 100% of which went to Love Without Boundaries

LWB is a non-profit organization with a vision to provide the most loving and compassionate help possible to orphaned and impoverished children in China. They show the world that every child, regardless of his or her needs, deserves to experience love and be treated with dignity and care.
