About This Activity

Run For Our Youth Race proceeds go towards youth development with a focus on Joshua House's Youth Running Club.
Youth Running Club:
The Joshua House Youth Running Club (JHYRC) is a twice-weekly after-school program to train young runners to run a 5K.  The program is open to boys and girls of all running abilities in 1st-8th grades.  Our motto is "Run YOUR race!" which emphasizes the fact that God has a specific plan and purpose unique to each of our runners.  We also teach our runners to set and achieve realistic goals, which boosts their confidence and helps them become successful on the race course, but more importantly, in life.  
Through this race, you can make an impact in the following ways:  
1.  Inspire our youth runners by running the race and encouraging them along the way.  
2.  Run the race as a "Running Buddy" with one of our youth runners.  
3.  Donate towards our programs for these youth runners.  
4.  If you're not a runner, come cheer on the youth runners as they run their race!

To be an official "Running Buddy" for one of our youth runners, please contact Mizpah Glenny at
