DESCRIPTION

RUN or WALK with us at the World Orphans Run, Hill Country 5K and Concert! The run features a scenic 5K course, prizes for top finishers, a kids' fun run, and finish line expo for the entire family! Join us inside after the race for an awesome time of praise and worship! Most importantly, we're all coming together to help children. Help us raise $10,000 and run on behalf of a child from one of our projects.

It's easy to register or join a team! There is no charge for registration, but each registrant will receive a fundraising page and is asked to raise a minimum of $25 to cover race costs. We would love if all of our runners would consider fundraising so that we can help more children. 

  • Raise $50 or more and receive a Bus Token necklace with $10 going toward purchasing a school bus for refugee children in Iraq to attend school. 
  • Raise $100 or more and receive a World Orphans Camelbak water bottle. 
  • More prizes for top fundraisers!
