PEOPLES 5K 2018
The Peoples Church
Over 68 million men, women and children are forcibly displaced in the world. Forced to flee their homes to escape war, persecution and famine. Imagine being unwanted and rejected, turned away at border crossings, left with nowhere to go, living in refugee camps and unsure of what the future holds.
We call ourselves The Peoples Church because we embrace all the peoples of the world. And we believe there is room for everyone. Let’s let our brothers and sisters know that we love them and we welcome them. Walk, run and roll for people who trek through deserts, scale mountains and cross oceans to flee from war, persecution and famine.
This year, we hope to raise $50,000 towards refugee support and rally 500 people to register for the Peoples 5K.
Proceeds will go towards activities that will help us, as a church, be more prepared to respond to the global refugee crisis. Funds will be utilized for Newcomers Ministry and Silas Hill activities that benefit refugees as they strive to settle in Canada and find community and support.
Move for the forcibly removed.
