WBGL’s Run for Hope 5K

What if you could share hope just by purchasing a pair of shoes?  We invite you to do just that!

WBGL’s Run for Hope 5K is back this year on August 14th and we are collecting  new shoes for Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls, an organization that reaches vulnerable children with the love of Jesus.  This August, you have the option to join us in person in Champaign, or to participate virtually from your own neighborhood.

The WBGL Run for Hope is happening August 14th at 8am on the grounds of The High School of Saint Thomas More.

Registration costs $20 and covers the cost of your shirt and medal.  We invite you to purchase a pair of shoes on top of that to help vulnerable children and share the love of Jesus in a practical way.  We will be collecting new shoes of all sizes for Buckner all summer long.  You can drop them off at the WBGL studios, mail them to us, bring them on race day or drop them off at the following Rural King stores: Benton, Charleston, Champaign, Decatur, Effingham, Terre Haute, Marion, Mattoon, Peru and Plano.  You can give even give online to Buckner here.

The Run for Hope 5K is sponsored by Pavers & More, Alec Ring Financial Coach with Ring Financial, Krekels West and Krekels in Mt. Zion.

Registration for this event has closed.  Shirts for virtual participants will be mailed out in August.
