2015 HARVEST FESTIVAL & COMPACT 5K

Mark your calendars now for this year's Harvest Festival and Run for the Family 5K.  Both events will be on Saturday, October 3rd. 

 

We kick off our morning with our 2nd Run for the Family 5K fun run at 7:00am.  It will be held in the beautiful Garvan Woodland Gardens park and is open to the public.  We encourage you to join us as we raise funds to redeem fatherless kids and families.  Registration is now open and is only $25 (which includes your race shirt.)  You can get all the information you need as well as register at www.compact5k.com


Hay Ride Following our 5K, we will have our annual Harvest Festival celebration on the Hillcrest Campus in Hot Springs, AR.  Join us for an afternoon of fun for the entire family.  Games, inflatables, lots of yummy treats and our highly competitive Chili Cook Off.  The fun starts at 11:00am and will last through 2:00pm.  We would love to have you and your family join us. 

 

In years past, the purpose of our annual Harvest Festival was to provide a way for churches, organizations, and families to bring a harvest of supplies to our campus to help meet our growing needs as well as get the opportunity to see first hand the ministries happening on our campus.  If this is something you would like to continue to be a part of, we invite you to come.  Bring a group and join us on October 3rd. 

HF/5K EVENT SPONSORSHIP
5K Run Inflatibles
In order for us to put on events such as these and to be able to focus on providing a fun filled day for our students, we need your help through Event Sponsorship. 
 
Funds from Event Sponsorship will go towards providing water and snacks at the 5K, awards for our runners at the 5K, as well as food and activities like inflatables at the Harvest Festival.  If you or your business are looking for a great project to sponsor, this is the one for you.
