2k Walk and 5k Run for Georgetown Ministry Center
Join members from the Georgetown neighborhood, Georgetown University community, and Georgetown Ministry Center family on a beautiful Fall afternoon to raise awareness and support for Georgetown Ministry Center.
You can take in Georgetown University’s beautiful campus with a leisurely 2k walk or participate in some friendly competition in the 5k run. Not sure if you can train for the 5k in time? Register anyway; you’ll be able to decide whether to walk/run the day of during check-in. Costume are encouraged, but entirely optional!
We will have music, a cookout, and prizes for the fastest male and female 5k runners, the best costume, and the registrant who raises the most money in sponsorships for GMC.
If you don’t want to run or walk, register anyway and come cheer on GMC’s Executive Director, Gunther, who will be running the 5k!
When: Sunday, October 20, 2013.
Schedule: Registration at 11:00am-11:30am ; Blessing and Keynote Speaker at 11:30am; Start at 11:45am
Where: Georgetown University campus, registration at Red Square
Who: This event is open to everyone and all ages!
Why: Because nearly 12,000 poeple in Washington, DC are homeless. Georgetown Ministry Center guides chronically, service-resistant homeless individuals toward stability and housing through aggressive street outreach, providing a safe and welcoming environment in our center where everyone is treated with respect, and educating our community about homelessness. We seek to end homelessness one person at a time.
