Updates+RunFAR // September 8, 2017 //

The 2017 RunFAR Challenge returns this year on October 21st! Delaware Valley and southeastern PA church teams will Run For African Relief in a *5K or Fun Run/Walk, as together they raise funds for Covenant Mercies. Fellowship, fundraising, fitness, and fun… join us at the ChesLen Preserve in Chester County this fall! The Preserve will also provide a free lunch for all event participants.

The winning church team will be determined by a combination of race times and fundraising totals, and will earn the right to display David Sacks’ beautiful photograph, “The Race,” in their building for the year.
