Description

About This Event:

​Event Overview: In 2013, a high school student who heard about foreverU, organized a foreverU 5k Family Fun Run for Global Youth Service Day. Since then, our 5k has become an annual event that we always look forward to and has become another great way to allow youth to positively impact those in their community.

For quite some time, we had been trying to develop a more creative and energetic way to bring communities together to experience the message of foreverU. This event has been made to empower and inspire while also having a ton of fun. Our main theme is to get you to think about the question, "What are YOU running from?"
