Hope Grafted In is a US non-profit ministry, based out of Leo, Indiana, whose mission is to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves. Hope Grafted In has had the opportunity to come alongside indigenous missionaries in both Uganda and Kenya by providing emergency relief aid, sustainable project development, and sponsorship facilitation, all in the context of real relationship.
In addition, a student and family sponsorship program was created in response to the need for accessible education for children living in Uganda. Through sponsorship, sponsors and families in Uganda partner together to share the cost of education, empowering and partnering with families in order to make education accessible for their children. This model empowers both the children and their families, helping them reach their full potential.
And, now, there is another opportunity to join Hope Grafted In in their effort to speak up for others around the world! On April 22, 2017 at 9 a.m., Hope Grafted In will hold its second annual 5k with a course that begins and ends at Grabill Missionary Church. New this year, we have added a Kids’ Fun Run free for all children age 8 or younger, beginning at 8:45 a.m. You can register online to participate by visiting the race website at: www.hopegraftedin.org/5k.
There are three ways you can register! You can choose to complete a general registration by completing the online form, choosing your t-shirt size, and paying the $35 registration fee. However, if you cannot make it to Northeast Indiana for the race, simply register online and run wherever it is convenient for you anytime on or around April 22! Lastly, you can register as a fundraiser. That means that you register at no cost and ask family and friends to help support your race. When you raise $100 or more, your registration is free, and you have helped by sharing the mission of Hope Grafted In while raising additional funds for a great cause!
