The Hamilton Thanksgiving Day 5k for YoungLives has become a Hamilton tradition. Now in our 5th year, we have over 800 runners and volunteers that gather to kick off their Thanksgiving morning! The morning begins with a FREE kids fun runat 8:30 AM, followed by a short celebration of our teen moms. The 5k begins at 9 AM, with the course closing at 10:15 AM. We have awards valued at $50+ each for the top male and female runners in eight age groups, all donated from local businesses. The after-party festivities include produce sponsored by Jungle Jim’s, treats from Almond Sisters Bakery, and coffee from True West. And, if you are feeling festive, you can join in the turkey bowling or get a photo with a life-sized turkey at the photo booth.
YoungLives is an affiliate of Young Life, a non-denominational Christian organization that serves high school students. For more than twenty years, YoungLives has provided mentorship to teen moms, who are either pregnant or are parenting, and shaped generations. Mentors build relationships with teen moms, offering guidance in matters of faith, parenting and self-worth. YoungLives provides community to young moms who are typically isolated from their high school peers and gives them a hope for their future. This investment of time and heart has empowered positive, sustainable change in the lives of these beautiful families.
