The 2019 Run/Walk 5K and Fall Festival was on Saturday, October 12, 2019 and was widely attended and enjoyed by members of New Song Church and the community of Henderson. In attendance was Mayor Debra March as well as a local star of stage and screen – Sir Winston, as well as representatives from New Song Church Ministries and even Antique Car Fans.
The weather could not have been better for our Run/Walk participants who turned out in higher numbers than in previous years. “I’m super excited about how many people showed up today and participated in the race, ” said Pastor Paul Block, “it’s great to see so many faces come out to support all these great non-profit outreach groups!”
As of the writing of this post, new Song Church staff are still tabulating the extraordinary number of donations and pledges and have not yet been able to calculate a final total. Donations to Jeremy’s Thoughtful Thermals and Up and Running were generated through ticket sales and throughout the event. A variety of outreach ministries including Military Ministry, Women’s Ministry, Animal Ministry, Stephen Ministry and more signed up new members and were able to collect an amazing amount of pledges from folks willing to participate in outreach, blood drives and other community-minded endeavors.
A huge THANK YOU goes out to everyone who helped (and was helped by) the 2019 Run/Walk 5K and Fall Festival! We will post updates to the tabulation totals as soon as we can!
