Gravel Hill United Methodist Church is proud to host the Third Annual Cemetery Ridge 5K Challenge (CR5K) scheduled for October 26, 2013. Once again, the CR5K will benefit The Caring Cupboard, a local ministry currently serving an average of 130 families or 1,600 people per week with basic food products and perishable goods. Last year, we were able to donate over $4000 to the Caring Cupboard as a result of our generous sponsors and community support from everyone who came out to run or walk. That's nearly $6000 over two years to this invaluable charity organization! Like previous years, the event will originate from Gravel Hill United Methodist Church, wind its way though the cemetery, up and down hills past farm land, through a development and back to the cemetery for a final sprint to the finish!
All proceeds and canned goods go directly to the Caring Cupboard, and participants and spectators are welcome to bring can goods to help the cause! All participants who bring in canned goods or non-perishable items will also be entered in to win two additional monetary doorprizes!
