January 16- 23, 2021 We hope you will join us for Run for Young from the comfort of your own running/walking route! We have our classic 5k option, but have also added 1 Mile Fun Run and 10k options this year as well!
Run for Young is a run/walk planned and managed by Christ Church youth. The race honors the memory of Sadiki Young, a Christ Church member and acolyte, who was a senior at Wakefield High School when he died as the passenger in an alcohol-related accident in 2007. In 2008 the Run for Young was founded by Christ Church youth as a way to both honor the memory of Sadiki and raise awareness of safe driving methods for local teens. Today, a percentage of the proceeds goes to local high schools with high participation numbers in the race for safe driving education programs. The remainder goes to the Christ Church Youth Ministry Endowment Fund, which grants funds and scholarships to Christ Church youth and young adults for community projects, retreats, and events.
