This is the third year that the committee has held a race. In 2020, Run with Heart benefited two local infants in need of heart surgery. In 2021, The Furry Scurry benefited His Hands Extended Sanctuary.
This year, Run with Heart benefits Held by Him, which is a local outreach ministry. All funds raised from the race will be used for community outreach. To learn more about Held by Him, visit heldbyhim.org.
We are pleased to announce the business sponsors of this year’s race: Johnson Welded Products, KTH Parts Industries, Orbis, Thrievent, Woodruff Automotive, Parker Trutec, Urbana and ARC Staffing Solutions and Edwards Surveying. Jenkins Tax Service and Mercy Health are contributing items to the participants’ goodie bags as is Orbis and Woodruff Automotive.
Run with Heart is a great event that not only brings the community together, it also provides assistance to those in our community who need encouragement. If you or your business would like to be involved, please contact Lisa Blake at [email protected]
