About This Activity

Join us for a fun, casual 5K run with a 1.5 mile walk option. $20.00 for participants 10 years and older. Price includes an event t-shirt for THOSE PARTICIPANTS WHO REGISTER BEFORE MAY 23rd. (Due to printing and delivery of merchandise, we cannot guarantee t-shirts for those who register after May 23rd.)

The run will take you through city streets and along groomed trails with beautiful views of Lake Comus. (This is a FUN RUN; no official timing.)

An ice cream social will follow the run/walk, along with a Kid's Market. Money raised will go to AVERYday Ministries.


I have a child 9 years old or younger who wants to participate. Can they?

Absolutely! They're free, so they won't receive a t-shirt or a bib number, but they can absolutely participate free of charge!

Can I use a stroller or child jogger?

Yep! The route will take walkers on all paved roadways. If you're running the route, you'll be on paved roadways and groomed, gravel trails. There is a section of the runner's route that is on more of a "path in the woods" type of trail, but luckily there's a groomed, gravel path that runs parallel to it that you could choose to use if you don't want to take baby to rough it. (It's not that rough, but still.)

I would like to purchase an event t-shirt. Can I?

Sure! We figure several of the younger kids might want a t-shirt, so here's what you need to do to ensure a t-shirt:

Mail your payment ($10 each; $12 XXL) to: AVERYDAY MINISTRIES, PO Box 214, Delavan WI 53115. Be sure to include the number of shirts, shirt sizes, proper payment and contact information.

What is AVERYday Ministries and why are they having a 5K?

AVERYday Ministries was created shortly after the sudden and unexpected death of 11-year old Avery McCarthy on October 24, 2012. Avery loved Jesus! She was incredibly faith filled and left a legacy that has affected hundreds. Avery planned to grow up to serve on mission trips, especially in the country of Haiti. Avery spent her life telling others about Jesus in a fun, exciting way and we wanted a way to continue to be Avery's voice. In the short time AVERYday Ministries has existed, we have helped send 5 people to Haiti on Mission Trips; we've held an incredible Christian concert at our local college with Contemporary Christian artist, Jamie Grace; we've donated books to school libraries; and hosted a basketball program for middle school girls. All things Avery was passionate about and enjoyed. We have much more planned and this 5K will help raise money to support our future plans!

Will money from the Kid's Market go to AVERYday Ministries?

Kids choosing to participate in the Kid's Market will be "selling" their goods and wares after the event in the gym where we'll be enjoying ice cream! They must agree to donate 20% of their sales to AVERYday Ministries. The remainder they should use to replace their stock, and then they can choose what to do with the rest: save it, donate it. spend it on something important to them. This opportunity will help children learn that they can use their talents to help improve the world and give them some business skills for the future!
