CGI’s annual Empower 5K was Saturday, and the day could not have been better! The temperature was just cool enough, the sun was shining, and spirits were high as over 150 participants took to the trails at Eagle Creek Park!
It was truly an event for the whole family, with plenty of fun activities for kids after the race. Balloon animals, snow cones and games kept the little ones happy, and it was a great chance to be with others who share our vision. Many of the runners/walkers formed teams, and we want to give a HUGE ‘thank you’ to Heidi Nordhoff for organizing her team of 50+ friends and family members to support CGI!
Each year draws more and more participants, and this year was our highest number yet! It’s so encouraging to see new faces eager to make a difference in the lives of the poor, halfway around the world. Each participant played a role in not just supporting CGI’s programs, but in valuable Kingdom work. We’d love to see even more of you at next year’s event!
Thank you for making it a wonderful day!
