Create 5K Walk/Run Event
Is a Fundraiser to Create Opportunities
FOR CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD.
This event benefits our local community by educating kids through our summer arts program called “Create”. Through Create, students will be fed, cared for by a strong community of teachers, and will be able to show their talents by performing at one of our community events.
The money raised will also provide backpacks and school supplies for children in our community. This event is a yearly event that gives kids a jump start to the new school year.
Through last year's Create 5K, we were able to establish an orphanage in India that houses 14 young boys we provided shelter, food, education and community for these young kids. This year's Create 5K will sustain the orphanage so that the young boys can continue getting these basic needs.
As you can imagine, all of this costs money. Creating opportunities for the less fortunate doesn’t come cheap. That’s why we have decided to create an opportunity for you the participant to meet this need by participating in our Create 5K Walk/Run Fundraiser, which will be held at Woodlawn Park on July 12th from 8am-10am. Our approach is very simple.
If every participant approaches 10 family members/friends/coworkers and asks them to sponsor $25 each, we will have raised $250 per person. As you can see, the money could add up very quickly. We need 80 participants at $250 in order to fully fund the arts camp, the backpack drive and the orphanage.
