Mount Olive Youth’s 4th Annual 5k Fundraiser

Mount Olive Senior Youth and Missions is hosting its 4th Annual 5k Fundraiser, “Run 2 Grace” on Saturday, April 27, 2019 to raise money in it is in support of the 33 youth attending the LCMS National Youth Gathering, July 2019. Plans are well under way to make this a fun 5k walk/run and we believe this event will be well-attended.  Last year’s 5k event brought out over 100 walkers/runners.

Mount Olive Lutheran has been a part of the Anoka community for over 70 years. This race is not only an opportunity for our youth and adults to fundraise for missions, but it is our way to outreach, help with wellness goals, and get out into our community, as the 5k race will start from Mount Olive and make our way through local neighborhoods to the river and finish at Mount Olive.
