LifePoint Church in Plano does a lot of great things in our community, and a big one is their annual 5K & Fun Run, held this year on Saturday, March 21 at 8 am. It takes place at LifePoint Church, located just north of Hedgecoxe Road near Coit Road.
This LifePoint event exists to bring awareness of the hurting, helpless, hopeless and homeless in Collin County and to help alleviate those conditions though their partner organizations. Last year’s proceeds totaled $54,548.34, which provided $7,792.62 to City House and each of the other six beneficiaries of the event, all of which help with homelessness.
“City House is very thankful of the great work of giving back that LifePoint Church does,” said City House Executive Director Teresa Keenan. “We are looking forward to another great event with hundreds of runners out there to get healthy and help contribute to the battle against homelessness at the same time.”
They even have a pre-race training regimen, each Saturday at 8 am beginning on January 24 at the church. The 5K is $30 until March 14, and $35 afterwards. The Fun Run is $15 until March 14, and $20 afterwards. Or you could even choose the “Sleep in” option – donate $15 and still get a T-shirt!
