Trinity Baptist Church will sponsor Race for Missions, a 5K run/walk race to benefit typhoon relief efforts in the Philippines, Sept. 20 at the church, 7839 County Road 236.
The race will begin at 9 a.m. Packet pick-up and race-day registration is from 7:45 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. The route will begin at the church and wind through the Fox Run neighborhood, ending at the church.
Early-bird registration is $20 through Monday, then $25 through race day. A T-shirt is included while supplies last. The race has been certified to guarantee the route length and will be chip timed.
Parts of the Philippines were devastated by Typhoon Haiyan in November, then, in the midst of restoration work, Typhoon Rammasun hit in July, causing further devastation.
Missionaries Howard and Virginia Wynn of Raleigh, North Carolina, who are sponsored by Trinity Baptist Church, have been selected to administer the race proceeds.
The Wynns have been serving the people of the coastal town of Tacloban City in the Philippines for 36 years.
All registration fees will be sent to the Philippines to replace equipment in a community center/church in Tacloban City.
Registration forms are available online at www.raceformissions.com. The fee may be paid online or mailed to the church. Donations for the Philippines may also be made online.
