Run for the Son 2018

Thank You for a Fantastic 12th Annual Run for the Son!

Thanks to all of our sponsors, runners, and volunteers, our 12th Annual Run for the Son 5k was a huge success! The race was held on Saturday, May 5th at First United Methodist Church and sent runners on a scenic tour of Downtown Ellijay.

Alex Stolz and Naomi Coombs were the overall race winners. The Cup of Legends trophy for the team with the most registered runners went to Pleasant Grove Baptist Church and the Cup of Champions trophy for the most active participants went to Ellijay CORE Fitness.

We are so thankful to all of the Sponsors and Volunteers that made the 2018 Run for the Son possible. Without these generous businesses and individuals, neither the Run for the Son nor our ministry as a whole would be possible!
