Mount Olive Youth’s 5th Annual 5k Fundraiser

Mount Olive Senior Youth is hosting its 5th Annual 5K Fundraiser, “Run2Grace” on Saturday, May 9, 2020 to raise money in support of our youth attending short term mission trips in 2020, including Spokefolk and Idaho Servant Adventures. Plans are well under way to make this a fun 5k walk/run and we believe this event will be well-attended. Over the last 4 years, our event has brought in 100’s of runners in support of our youth! 

Mount Olive Lutheran has been a part of the Anoka community for over 70 years. This race is not only an opportunity for our youth and adults to fundraiser for missions, but it is our way to outreach, help with wellness goals, and get out into our community, as the 5K race will start from Mount Olive and make our way through local neighborhoods to the river and finish at Mount Olive.
