5k Family Run/Walk

Location: Mariner Point Park in Joppa, MD
Time: 5k @ 8:00 AM, Walk begins immediately after 5k starts

On April 11, 2015, Trinity Lutheran Church will be hosting a Family 5K Run/Walk to benefit local, national and international mission trips for men, women and youth from Trinity to be held throughout 2015 and 2016.  Currently scheduled mission trips include the youth mission trip to Green Bay, Wisconsin, the adult mission trip to the Gulf Coast of the US, and the women’s mission trip to the Caribbean/Central America.  The proceeds from this Family 5K Run/Walk will equally benefit all three trips.  Each trip lasts a week and approximately 75 participants from Trinity Lutheran Church ages 15 to 75 will be participating.  More information on Trinity Lutheran Church can be found on their website,
