YoungLives 5K Run/Walk – June 27, 2015
We are honored to share with you about an amazing ministry here in Des Moines and the FUN family event they have coming up!
YoungLives is a 100-percent community funded ministry. Proceeds from this great family event will help send local teen mothers and their babies to a weeklong YoungLife camp at TimberWolf Lodge near Lake Michigan this summer. Teen moms and babies will get an opportunity to relax, meet other teen moms from around the country, and most importantly, receive an opportunity to experience the love of Jesus.
This year’s theme is SUPERMOMS/Little Super Heroes, so bring your family dressed up in their favorite super hero costumes to support all SUPERMOMS in your life! Ariel from Little Princess Parties and a Super Hero will be at the race for the kids, as well as a Kids Dash at 9:45 a.m. that day. Bring your entire family out to this uplifting event for fitness, fellowship, snacks, and a silent auction! Power Life Yoga will be providing a warm up before the race around 8:45 a.m.
Registration is available at https://secure.getmeregistered.com/get_information.php?event_id=120903. DMMB Followers can get $5 off their registration with code YLS5OFF.
