Cooler weather is around the corner, and that means it’s time for outdoor fun – football, hayrides, pumpkin patches, and the 17th Annual Run for Hope!
The run will be held Saturday, November 11th at Bonita Lakes and includes a 10k Trail Run, a 5k Road Race, a 2 Mile Walk and a 1 Mile Fun Run. The Hope Village Guild would like to invite you to come with a friend, or to gather your running group, school friends, or office co-workers and take our group challenge. All proceeds benefit the children of Hope Village for Children.
