This 5K run/walk (chip timing) is organized by Mary, Queen of the Americas Catholic Church (María, Reina de las Américas) and St. Therese of the Child Jesus (Misión Católica Santa Teresa del Niño Jesús) in partnership with the town of Mt. Olive and MISSIONHURST-CICM. The event aims to foster a healthy community while giving you the opportunity to be of help and be attentive to the needs of the missions abroad without even having to go out of the country.
Missionhurst-CICM is a non-profit organization of religious missionaries presently working in 22 countries worldwide in education, development, relief and health care. The proceeds of this fun run will:
- Help sponsor 100 Haitian kids to go to school in 2017 at St. Jean Bosco School in the mountain-village of Bois de Laurence in Northeast Haiti; and
- Benefit the youth (formation) and local church communities of Mary, Queen of the Americas in Mt. Olive and St. Therese in Beulaville.
The race begins and ends at Westbrook park (210 Westbrook Street, Mount Olive, NC 28365)
