Dear Friends, Family, and Businesses in our Community,

It is with great excitement that we would like to announce that we will be hosting our first, “Run for Hope 5k” on September 10, 2016 at Hope Community Church, formerly Element Church and Second Baptist Church. It is our desire this year to support Hartley Plyler’s education at the ClemsonLIFE program at Clemson University. This program is designed for students with intellectual disabilities who desire a postsecondary experience on a college campus.  Hartley was born with several medical conditions that would put obstacles before her and result in numerous surgeries over her lifetime. This program is almost $40,000 a year, and Hartley’s family has exhausted their savings on medical bills over the years. Hartley’s parents were told when she was just a baby that she would never walk, yet she has completed a 5k. In order to ensure the success of this very important event, we are seeking sponsorship & donations to help defray the costs associated with this 5k, so that all funds raised can go directly to support Hartley in furthering her education.

For a $100 donation or more, your name/business logo will be proudly displayed on the shirt that is given to each runner. Please mail your donation to 1114 S. Lafayette St. Shelby, NC 28152. Make checks payable to Hope Community Church. Thank you in advance for your support.
