2019 RUN FOR A REASON - October 20th
RUN FOR A REASON!
Through the partnership of Stonegate Fellowship and private donors, 100% of Race Registrations will be donated to Honor Our Troops. Therefore, your registration is bringing encouragement and support to active military personnel, serving overseas. Every 5K/10K registration will send a care package to one of our troops.
WHY: October is West Texas’ prime walking and running weather. Sleep in on Saturday, attend a church Sunday morning, then join us at 5 pm Sunday to "Run for a Reason!” Stay and watch the sunset while your family enjoys inflatables, watermelon, and hot-dogs.
REASON: Honor Our Troops (H.O.T.)
In 2004, my son Chad was deployed to Afghanistan with the 501st Airborne. He told me many times that there were a lot of soldiers on his base that were not receiving anything from the States, not a card, letter, or care package. After a little research, I discovered that this is the case on every one of our military bases. That's why I started H.O.T. - Honor Our Troops.
Since 2004 H.O.T. has sent over 65,000 care packages around the world. Presently, H.O.T. is in 13 countries on 13 military bases, including Jordan, Poland, Italy, Afghanistan etc. Our mission is to send as many care packages as we can on a weekly bases to build the morale of our FINEST, letting them know they are in our hearts. H.O.T. is a 501C3 and partners with indidviduals, businesses, schools and churches across Texas to Honor Our Troops. (Jim Leascher, Founder - Honor Our Troops).
WHEN: Sunday, October 20, 2019 - 5pm.
WHERE: Stonegate Fellowship, 6000 West Wadley, Midland,TX
