Run For Shelter

The Forest Grove United Church of Christ in partnership with Sonrise Church Forest Grove, is sponsoring a 5k and 1 mile Run-Walk to be held on Saturday, October 7 at 9:00 AM at Forest Grove High School.  The Run-Walk-Trot is to benefit the Temporary Emergency Shelter operated by the Forest Grove United Church of Christ and Sonrise Church Forest Grove, and to advocate for low income housing.  This event will directly benefit low income persons and underserved populations, notably children and those experiencing disabilities.

Participants will receive official race results (not chip-timed), snacks, awards and prizes following the completion of the Run-Walk.  Participants will also walk away feeling good about supporting a great cause and knowing they are making a difference in the lives of our neighbors experiencing homelessness.

If you’d like to participate in the Run or Walk for Shelter but are unable to attend the event, you can participate with us in spirit, i.e. run or walk at any location (even on your treadmill) at your pace wherever and whenever you like.  You can register with us officially to “Run/Walk for Shelter.”
