             Harvest of Hope Family Services Network, Inc. presents its 5th Annual

5K Run and Walk, raising awareness for children in the foster care system. All proceeds from this year's event will provide scholarship to children who have spent time in foster care.  It is the goal of Harvest of Hope to increase outcomes for children who have experienced challenges in their lives.


Now is an excellent time to sign-up and to gear- up for this event to aide children in the foster care system while improving your health for 2016.  Did you know you that there are numerous ways running can benefit your health and lifestyle?
