WILL FREDERICK MEMORIAL 5K

RUN FOR THE KIDS

APRIL 27, 2024  •  8AM

 

Welcome to the 6TH Annual Will Frederick Memorial 5K RUN FOR THE KIDS

We're running (and walking) for a purpose and that purpose is the kids and youth in our community!  With more than 25 different sponsors and hundreds of walkers and runners, we have raised more than $65,000. From the proceeds of this race, we’ve seen high school football players accept Christ, been able to scholarship students to continue their education, helped fund adoptions that have brought babies home to their forever families, and the list goes on.

 

Walkers/Runners: You're invited to join us at 8AM on April 27, 2024 to run (or walk) the race route!  Registration is open now!  Register early to guarantee that you receive at 2024 race t-shirt!  

 

Partners/Sponsors:  As we prepare for our sixth race, we are reaching out to local businesses that we feel share that heart for community and are asking that they partner with us in the form of sponsorship so that this impact can continue to be possible.  Sponsorships are what allow us to do those BIG THINGS like sending kids to Christian camps where they encounter Jesus and pay legal fees for adoptions so that families can be united.  We are nothing without our sponsors and we hope that you will consider coming along side us!  It's not too late to sponsor the event.  If you are interested please email your interest to 5K@golifeway.com. Donations are always appreciated as well OR click here to get more details and complete our online registration form.  

 

Now, get your walking/running shoes ready, register as a participant and we'll see you on April 27, 2024 at 8am at Lifeway Church: 114 South Congress Street, York, SC 29745.

*This is a non-chipped race. A time clock will be provided at the finish line and each runner is responsible for collecting his time. Prizes will be awarded for first, second, and third place male and female finishers.

 

 

WHY WE RUN • WILL’S STORY
At 23 years old, Will Frederick had a lot of life to live. Recently married to Hannah Crews, Will was looking forward to having a family of his own but in the meantime, Will was pouring himself into children and students in the York area. Will unexpectedly passed away in August 2018 following complications from surgery. All proceeds from the Will Frederick Memorial 5K event will be used to continue Will’s legacy of impacting the youth of God's Kingdom.
