CHURCH GROUP IN TRAINING FOR THE KERSTETTER 5K RUN
Members of “OXYGEN” the Youth Group at Elyria’s Cross Community Church on North Abbe have been in training for this year’s Kerstetter 5K Run. Youth Minister Carissa Wright said the group discussed various missions they could get involved in this year when the idea of staying right here in town and supporting a local community event came up. “What an excellent way to be involved in a great community event with such a focus on health. For many of us this will be the first 5K we have participated in and everybody is excited about it.”
Wright said the Kerstetter 5K is a perfect fit for their group. “The event incorporates the community, family, health and a celebration of Jim’s life. I still remember him coming here to the Church to speak about the Block Watch. This was a no brainer to get involved and I strongly encourage other Churches and youth groups to get involved as well.”
About 20 people ranging in age from 12 to 52 have signed up from Cross Community Church with others signing up to do the walk.
