This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This year, GMC once again partnered with Georgetown University’s Center for Social Justice to host the Georgetown 5k Race Against Homelessness! Hundreds of runners, walkers, and supporters gathered on Sunday, March 26 on the historic campus of Georgetown University to raise funds for the work of Georgetown Ministry Center and shed light on the issue of homelessness in the Georgetown community.

After the 5k run and 2k walk, participants enjoyed the Post-Race and Spring Fling Celebration, featuring food, performances by Georgetown University student groups, and family-friendly fun. The event raised $18,000 for the work of Georgetown Ministry Center!

The three fastest male runners were:
Alexander Sanford, age 25, of Indianapolis, IN
Grant Faircloth, age 15, of Aldie, VA
William Schuette, age 21, of Midland, MI

The three fastest female runners were:
Rebecca Downs, age 26, of Indianapolis, IN
Knox Flynt, age 40, of Fairfax, VA
Laura Simmons, age 30, of Bethesda, MD

Full race results are available here.
