Rock the Run: A Race for Hope is Coming!

In just a few short weeks, well days really, Fairgrounds Park in Hagerstown will come to life with sounds of feet hitting the pavement to help improve the quality of life for the homeless and hungry in Hagerstown.

That’s right folks, it’s time for our 2nd Annual Rock the Run: A Race for Hope! Our 5K run/walk gives you, your family, friends, coworkers and neighbors a chance to come together, do something healthy & fun while also bringing hope to people who are often overlooked and forgotten about in our busy society.

For only $25, you can register to participate in our race. Proceeds from Rock the Run: A Race for Hope go towards providing shelter to the homeless and food to the hungry. At The Hope Center, all of our services are free for our guests and we do not use any tax money so everything we do is provided by the generosity and kindness of our friends in the community.

From providing a hot shower, to a warm meal, a comfortable bed or a new pair of shoes, The Hope Center at Hagerstown Rescue Mission has been on the front line battling the various issues that cause people to become desperate, hopeless and homeless.

With your help, we are providing opportunities for people to change their lives around and see the value in who they are through the eyes of a God who created them and loves them more than any human can ever understand.

So when you and your family & friends register for a morning jog at Rock the Run: A Race for Hope, you’re not just getting some good cardio in or gaining a new t-shirt, you’re literally providing someone with a fresh start. You’re giving a struggling family food for the week. You’re telling the lonely that they are not fighting alone. You’re letting the hurting know that God hears their cries and is taking action on their behalf.

It’s only a commitment of a morning for you but a lifetime of change for someone else. Grab your shoes and invite your friends to join you to run for someone in need. Registration is open now and is $25 until April 22nd. Registration is $30 on race day.

For more information or to register immediately, go to http://www.rocktherunhagerstown.com. And don’t forget to spread the word to everyone you know. The more the merrier!

We’ll see you on April 23rd at Fairgrounds Park in Hagerstown!

Our Sponsors Rock!

Rock the run logo jpgOrganizing our first 5K has been fun and challenging. We’re so excited for this opportunity to bring our community together for a day of physical activity while also raising awareness of the homeless and hungry in Hagerstown.

In order for this event to be successful and help people in need, we, ourselves, needed help from others.

And that’s why we love our sponsors so much!

These individuals and businesses help underwrite the expense of hosting such an event. Money raised by participant involvement can go towards the programs and ministries at The Hope Center that help the homeless, hungry, and hurting people in our community.

So please be sure to thank these businesses for their support of this ministry by using them the next time you need their services. And be sure to spread the word to your friends, families, co-workers, and others about these wonderful local businesses.

You Ready to Rock the Run?

It won’t be long until we host our first 5K Race/Walk in Hagerstown!

Our Rock the Run: A Race for Hope will take place on Saturday, April 25th at Fairgrounds Park in Hagerstown.

5k Race Sign Feb 1

We are dedicated to helping our neighbors who are homeless & hungry get the shelter, food, and support they need during tough times. This race is just another way for all of our friends in the area to come together and show support and love for those who are struggling.

Money raised through this race will help to fund our homeless (transient) shelter which operates every day of the year. We provide hot showers, toiletries, food, and a warm bed for thousands of homeless people each year.

And we’ve been providing these same services to people since 1955 at no cost to our guests or the tax payer! 

Participating in this race helps to make sure that the less fortunate have a safe, comfortable and loving place to rest, relax, and refresh all in the name of Christ.

You ready to help? Go to http://www.rocktherunhagerstown.com to register. And be sure to spread the word to your family, friends, coworkers, church, civic clubs, and more!

We’ll also have our donation trucks available at the race if you have gently used items for our Thrift Stores and Family Assistance ministry as well as food items for our food bank.
