Abilene Christian High School is hosting its Second Annual Touch A Life Francis 5K Fun Run & Walkathon, an event that raises money to sponsor a formerly trafficked child named Francis. Touch A Life rescued 12-year-old Francis from the fishing industry on Lake Volta in June 2010. All the proceeds raised at this event will go to Francis to ensure that his living expenses – housing, food, medical care, tuition, therapeutic programming – are covered.
It costs $25 to pre-register and $30 the day of the event.The race will be held on Saturday, April 20th, at the Abilene Christian University’s Track and Lunsford Trail (link to website). For further questions or information about the event, please contact Kimberli Brackett or Madison Pamplin.
We would not be nearly as successful without the help of the people who host events like this and donate the proceeds to our organization.
Thank you to everyone involved in the Francis 5K Fun Run & Walkathon! Are you inspired by this group’s efforts? If so, consider hosting an event of your own!
