Wholehearted 5K set for April 16 at Milligan


MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (March 30, 2016) — A group of Milligan College students will host the inaugural Wholehearted 5K (formally Hands and Feet 5K) fun run on Saturday, April 16, at 10:30 a.m. to raise money for the Wholehearted Orphanage in Haiti, a Christian organization that provides homes and education for orphaned children.

The race will be held on Milligan’s campus at the Village residential halls, located at the end of Frank Oakes Drive. There will be a cookout after the race. Registration is $15 before April 16 or $20 on the day of the race. Online registration is available at www.milligan.edu/wholehearted5k.

All proceeds from the run benefit the Wholehearted Orphanage, located in Fonds-Parisien, Haiti, whose current focus is to provide a safe, loving and Christ-centered environment for children and missionaries in Haiti.

“Wholehearted Orphanage is currently in the midst of a huge project, expanding from one home to eight in order to house 96 children,” said junior Victoria Rivera, one of the race’s organizers who has done mission work for Wholehearted Orphanage. “Our goal for the Wholehearted 5K is to have at least 80 runners and raise $1,200 for this project. Whether you walk or run, we hope that everyone comes out to support this wonderful cause!”

Register by April 8 to receive a t-shirt. For more information, email wholehearted5k@milligan.edu.
