We are excited to be hosting the 7th Annual Blake’s Run 5K! The race will be chip timed to make things a little more competitive! We will have cash prizes for the overall winners in each age and gender categories.
If you aren’t competitive – no worries – just run for fun. All proceeds from Blake’s Run will be used to send people on mission trips throughout the U.S. and around the world.
Why is it called Blake’s Run?
On December 23, 2001, Blake Schoenrock, who was 10 years old at the time, wrote a note and wrapped it up like a Christmas present. Every year, Blake would put the package under the family Christmas tree, but no one was allowed to open it, and no one other than Blake knew what was inside.
Blake went on to live his life well and was enjoying his time as a Texas A&M student when, just 10 days after completing a triathlon, he suffered a major heart attack. After a courageous and well-fought six-day battle, Blake entered into the presence of God.
Following his death, Blake’s parents opened the little gift their son had placed gently under the tree every Christmas for the past 10 years. What they found was more than just a note — it was a reminder of what had been most important to their son. The note read, “Tell the world about Jesus.”
