Last year over 700 people joined us for the MANNAthon 2014. All race proceeds benefit Manna Ministries which serves the working poor of the Roanoke Valley by providing over 1,000 families each month with a box of food. In addition to food boxes, the families at Manna are offered a hot meal, clothing, toys/books, toiletry items and snacks along with acceptance and love from over 60 volunteers. We are excited to expand Manna’s services by adding a backpack ministry that sends home backpacks of food. These kids may not otherwise have a meal over the weekend.
Wondering how can you help this great cause? You can participate in MANNAthon 2014.
Join us on Saturday, May 17 at 9:00 for the third annual MANNAthon 2014
The 5K race is designed for runners of all levels. This fast and flat route will begin and finish at Fallon Park. Runners will weave through neighborhoods in Southeast Roanoke, pass by Manna Ministries Food Bank and enjoy music along the way.
Are you a runner who is looking for something different? Sign up for our 8K route! These runners will begin at Fallon Park, run past Manna Ministries and continue on the Greenway. The 8K runners will finish at Fallon Park.
Not a runner? Join us for the 3K Family Walk at 9:05.
