About This Activity

Mt. Olive Lutheran Church is holding its 4th annual Mt. Olive Lutheran Cares 5K Run/Walk on September 12th, 2015 in Hickory, North Carolina. The 5K race begins at 8:00am. The 1 Mile Fun Run follows at 9:15am.

New for 2015: A special rate for Law Enforcement, Fire, EMS, and active duty military personnel. Wounded war veterans enter free! It's our way of saying 'Thank You' for your valuable service.

All proceeds from the event go to the church's Mt. Olive Cares Ministry, which supports and assists local community families in need.

Online registration is available now through this web site. A paper entry form is also available through the same link if you prefer to register the old-fashioned way!

September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month! More than 23 million children & teenagers in the U.S. are obese or overweight, a statistic that health and medical experts consider an epidemic. Childhood obesity puts nearly one third of America's children at early risk for Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and even stroke! Bring the kids and join us for a great run this September!
