Saturday. Nov 9th, 2019 is our 8th annual “Lace Up” 5K Cross Country Run/Walk and 1 mile Family Fun Walk in Hartland, WI that raises money to bring hope to orphans & foster children. Do you have a love for children? Your own children, foster children, global orphans? If so this family fun Run/Walk is for you!
Our fundraising efforts will be directed to two causes. Locally, we will support the Royal Family Kids Camp Hartland (www.hartland.royalfamilykids.org) which is a summer camp for children in the foster care system who have been abused, neglected and abandoned. Globally, we have partnered for 7 years with Orphan Outreach (www.orphanoutreach.com) to support vulnerable children in Jelgava, Latvia, who have aged out of the Jelgava City Orphanage. This includes humanitarian aid, life skills training, mentoring, employment help and Bible studies.
This race is one of the few 5K cross country runs in the area. It starts off on the soccer field at Lake Country Lutheran High School & works its way across the street into a beautiful wooded trail with the finish line back on the Lake Country Lutheran's grounds. This is a chip-timed race & during the post-race celebration awards will be given for the top runners by gender & age groups.
If not interested in running, you can also do a delayed start after the runners & walk the same 5K course or take a 1 Mile Family Fun Walk around the pond on the grounds of Lake Country Lutheran.
Post-race join us indoors in the Great Hall at the school for a post-race Celebration complete with food, drinks, music, kids’ activities, adoption & foster care information, race results & awards.
