Join us for the first annual Young Life Louisa 5k sponsored by Bethel Builders! Race starts at 7:45AM beside the Louisa County Courthouse on Main Street - at Courthouse Square, Louisa, VA 23093.
What is Young Life?
Young Life is a world-class organization for adolescents. We enter the world of high school kids in Louisa, focusing on what matters to them – fun, adventure, friendship and a sense of significance. In doing so, we earn the privilege of talking to them about something that we think matters most of all – the truth about God and His love for us. When Young Life leaders share God’s love with kids, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose. This is the first step of a lifelong journey; the choices high schoolers make today will shape them as the future small-business owners, teachers, nurses, mothers, and fathers of Louisa County. Young Life leaders are entering into Louisa County High Schoolers’ lives - building relationships with them, supporting them, loving them, and demonstrating God’s love to them on a daily basis.
How will the Young Life 5k help?
It is our hope that EVERY kid in Louisa County would have the chance to experience a life-changing week of Young Life camp. Each year, Young Life Louisa raises $2,000-$4,000 in camp scholarships to give to high schoolers who need financial assistance to pay for camp. 100% of the race entry fees and additional donations will be used for providing financial assistance to students wishing to attend Young Life camp this summer. Participating in the Young Life Louisa 5k will make it possible for many more LCHS students to experience the fun, adventure, and discovery that is unique to Young Life camp.
