About This Activity

Join us for the first annual DHI Run for Hope 5K race! The race will be held at the beautiful Lake Fairfax Park in Reston, Virginia and is officially certified as a 5K Cross Country course. David’s  Hope International (DHI) is a non-profit organization that partners with a local Kenyan organization, Camp Brethren Ministries (CBM) to work together to build  long-term, sustainable solutions that address the educational, medical, and spiritual needs of the community in Eburru, Kenya. We are hoping to raise $10,000+ which will be used toward ongoing projects in Eburru including the completion of one of the four remaining classrooms that need to be built. Honorary guests Pastor Steve Njenga and his wife Mary will be visiting from Kenya and joining us for the race! All participants and family members are invited to a picnic following the race. **Please send a separate email after registering for the race and let us know how many people will be attending the picnic as well.

** FYI this race was originally planned for May 17, 2014 but was unfortunately rained out. T-shirts were ordered in April according to previous participants so we will try our best to give you the size you requested but we cannot guarantee this. Also, t-shirts will have the May 17th date on them instead of the September 6th date.
