About This Activity

The 2nd Annual One Sparrow 5K Run, 1 mile Family Fun Run will take place on Saturday, May 10th, 2014 starting at 6 pm at Capital Community Church near Ashburn Elementary.
This USATF certified 5K course winds through beautiful Ashburn Village.  Modest hills and long straightaways make this course somewhat challenging, but not difficult for novice runners and walkers. The One Sparrow 5K Sunset run is fun course for all of the family. This year the course features 2 Party Zones with live DJs to keep our runners pumped up and running strong. The course also features 1 water stop along the way.
Immediately following the race there will be a Finish Line After-Party featuring food from some local restaurants, fun activities for the kids, and win some great raffle prizes!
Here are a few of the activities happening at the Finish Line After-Party:
Live DJ and Music
Food Truck Village
Glow in the Dark - Face Painting and Tattoo Station
Photo Booth
OneSparrows goal is to raise $80,000 to build an orphanage and school that would service the children of Bon Repos, Haiti. The Running Home for Haiti 5K Race is to raise $40,000 to purchase to the necessary land to begin the process. This orphanage would hopefully end the constant cycle of displacement these children face. This orphanage would also provide the education these children so desperately need so they could dream of a future greater than their current circumstances. Our mission is so much more than just building a building, we want to help build up a community and future generations.
