It's that time of year when the weather is nice, and people start to get out and enjoy their outdoor activities. In that same spirit, Set Me Free Ministries is providing a great way for you and your family to enjoy the beautiful weather and each other by participating in the Set Me Free Run.
Some of you may be tempted to stop reading right now, because, well, running isn't your thing. But keep reading, because even if the mere mention of running makes you cringe, we have plenty of great surprises and opportunities.
On Saturday, July 26, 2014, at 8:00 a.m. we are putting on the third annual Set Me Free Run in Omaha, Nebraska. We'd love for you to be a part of the day and join us for a scenic race at beautiful Standing Bear Lake.
Are you a runner? Choose from a 5K or a 10K run. Not a runner? Never fear! Slow down your pace and walk a relaxing 5K with your friends. With your entry fee, you receive a runner's quality T-shirt, a raffle for some amazing prizes, and plenty of refreshments after the race. I know it may be hot in July, so we promise water stations at every mile!
This year we're adding a 1-mile fun run for those kids! Register your kids for the 5K or 10K, of course! But for those kids who want to go a shorter distance, sign them up for a 1-mile fun run! Every participant of the fun run will receive a T-shirt and a medal.
For those of you who like extra incentive, we are holding a contest for the person who has the biggest team register for the race. The walker/runner with the most team members will win a $100 gift card to Old Chicago. Enjoy it with your team after the race or use it yourself. We won't tell. Simply have your team members register online and enter your name when asked who their team leader is. It's that simple!
I know there are those of you who are still cringing, because the idea of running or walking does not sound appealing. But you can still help out! We are looking for businesses or individuals to sponsor this event. With three levels of sponsorship, you can make a tax-deductible donation and possibly get your name on the back of the official Set Me Free Run T-shirt so everyone can see the name of your business. Oh, and in their race packets, every walker/runner will receive a booklet of sponsors with your business' name and information with an endorsement to patronize your business.
There are plenty of volunteer opportunities, too. Every bit of help counts.
We appreciate you more than you know. Whether you are a walker, runner, business sponsor, volunteer, or blessing us with your prayers, we need your help. A portion of all of our proceeds will go to Revolution 61, a ministry dedicated to putting a stop to human trafficking.
