Daybreak Ministries Race for LIFE

Join us for the THIRD annual Daybreak Ministries Race for LIFE 5K- We’re running for THEIR lives! All profits will go towards supporting the mission and vision of Daybreak Ministries by extending our reach in the Midlands. The race will be officially timed by FasTrak Timing and will be for both walkers and runners.

We have the option for YOU to help US turn this event into a major fundraiser for our ministry! This is NOT a requirement to participate, but we would love to have race participants obtain sponsors that will give in support of our mission to help us SAVE AND CHANGE LIVES here in the Midlands!

Here’s how it works:

  • Register through RunHard for the race (EVERYONE must do)
  • Check the “I want to help fundraise” box during registration to let us know that YOU will be a Daybreak 5K Ambassador! Linzy will contact you with your own personal giving website established for you to share with your supporters. (Again, this is not a requirement, but we would love for you to help!)
  • Send your giving website link to those who will be sponsoring you so they can give online!

  • It’s THAT EASY!! We have set a goal of raising $100,000 through this event! If each participant raises $1,000 (that’s only 10 people giving $100 each, or 20 people giving $50!) then we believe we will reach our goal!
