Run for the Son 2016- A Huge Success!
We want to thank everyone who came out to our 5K Saturday, May 7th. It was such a fun day and such a blessing for our ministry. We are so grateful to our sponsors. These businesses, organizations, and individuals enable the CLC to continue to minister to the teens of Gilmer County. It is because of your generous support that we are able to have our 6th grade program, teach more students in our high school classes than ever before, and begin long-range planning towards classes at CCMS. Please thank our sponsors when you visit their businesses. They make a huge difference in our ministry. Thank you to all who participated int the event! We had roughly 345 runners, walkers, and phantom runners, making this our biggest race ever!
We had a huge response with our team challenge this year. We want to congratulate Team Pink Fitness who came in 1st place winning the Cup of Legends with 42 team members. Thank you for helping make our race such a huge success! We also want to thank Pleasant Grove Baptist Church who came in 2nd place winning the Cup of Champions with 39 team members!
