About This Activity

The "Go The Distance" 5K / 3K run is to support Cameron Horner Ministries, a non-profit ministry that reaches out to people in need.  The President of CHM is Cameron Horner, a young man who had a diving accident over 2 years ago that left him paralyzed from the chest down.  He has been sharing his story of Faith at churches, youth events, retreats, and is beginning radio ministry.  This event will also be and an opportunity for participants to bring non-perishable food items that will be distributed to local food pantries.

The event and starting point will be held at the field next to Cox Toyota dealership in Burlington, and will begin with check-in, t-shirt and participant number pickup.  Participants will run through the beautiful Lake Mackintosh Community and will end back at Cox Toyota with a live band called "Broken Chains" and Chick-fil-a vendor.

The 3K "Family Fun Run" is for those participants and their families that would like to run/walk a shorter distance.  This route will also begin at Cox Toyota and enter the beautiful Lake Mackintosh Development with an alternate route separated from the 5K runners.  At the end of race there will be face painting and balloon art for kids (small donation appreciated).
