When: Saturday, September 20, 2014, 8:00 a.m.

Where: Church of the Risen Savior

What: 5K Fun Run/Walk

Cost: $25/person, Kids' Run $5/child

This is a flat, fast 5K run mainly on paved streets and bike paths. We offer a USAIF certified course with pace runners for the serious athlete.  We also welcome weekend runners and walkers to enjoy this great course. Participants of ALL abilities are invited and you are welcome to wheel, walk or run.  

In addition to the walk/run, this event also includes music, door prizes, half mile kids' event, informational booths, and refreshments.

Come help us celebrate as a community, and in the process give to others in our community who are in need, by participating in the 13th Annual Catch the Spirit - 5K Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, September 20, 2014.   This event is important for both, the CAP Agency and Church of the Risen Savior, to reach out to those in need.  For more information about CAP, you can go to their website:   They are a private, nonprofit organization that provides for the basic needs of those in Dakota, Scott & Carver county areas.  Some of their services include, but are not limited to, housing, food & nutrition, clothing, education, childcare & crisis care, emergency services, energy-related assistance, and more.  Similarly, Risen Savior has been able to support families needing these types of services by drawing from their emergency fund, which also receives some of the Fun Run proceeds.

As a participant in this event, you will be contributing to these programs.  Furthermore, there are Sponsorship Opportunities that area businesses as well as individuals can participate in to make this event an even greater success!  Being a Fun Run sponsor will give your business exposure on a local level.  Cash donations and door prizes are the types of contributions needed.  The door prizes are given to event participants on race day to thank them for being involved.  All other donations go toward the proceeds after expenses are paid.

Please consider supporting this event by stopping at the church office during office hours or mailing in your contribution to: 

Church of the Risen Savior, Attn. Debbie Kieser, 1501 E. County Rd 42, Burnsville, MN  55306.

Feel free to contact Christine Parker at (952) 221-3689 or e-mail if you have any questions about how you and/or your business can get involved, make donations and participate.
