Autumn In The Park | Run For Hope 5k

Autumn In The Park was organized to help the youth of Evident Church raise funds for summer camp, community outreach and to pack meals for Kids in Haiti through Lifeline Christian Ministries as well as to plan a fun family event for the community to enjoy. This year as a church we packed 5000+ meals for kids in Haiti and are looking to pack 10,000+ in 2022. I know you are asking "why not keep it local", we do, and in various ways. As a church we give away close to 50% of what comes in and we partner with various local organizations to ensure funds are handled in a way that makes the most impact. All funds and donations from this event will continue to impact our youth and community directly as they go and impact our community through various outreach projects.  


All donations and proceeds will go towards helping Evident YTH go to summer camp, community outreach projects as well as provide meals to kids in Haiti through Lifeline Christian Ministries. 

Presented By Evident Church

In cooperation with the Town of Sawmills, NC
