Steps of Faith 5K & Food Drive September 16th

oin us this September for our 7th Annual Steps of Faith 5K Run/Walk & Food Drive at Alum Creek Park off of Main St in Westerville.

Steps of Faith 5K is a community event celebrating all abilities—whether you are able to run, walk, or wheel your way to the finish line. Steps of Faith was inspired by a central Ohio Run For God community with the simple desire to glorify God in all that we do. The event is an opportunity to encourage one another in fellowship to run our race (Hebrews 12:1). This year’s race carries additional meaning as part of the 200th birthday celebration of Church of the Messiah United Methodist. The event will take place not far from the original gathering site for this congregation along Alum Creek.

NEW THIS YEAR, a Food Drive is being organized at the race by Drew Reed, a scout from Boy Scout Troop 560 as his Eagle Project.   Participants and spectators are invited to bring food items. Collected food items will be donated locally to the food pantry at the Westerville Area Resource Ministry (W.A.R.M.). Our goal is to collect 2,000 lbs of food for our 200th celebration. 

Music at the event will be provided by 104.9 The River!

All race proceeds will be distributed by Church of the Messiah United Methodist to support The Heinzerling Foundation and Bradley’s House of Hope, both working to engage & develop individuals with disabilities in a loving & nurturing environment.
