Christ Eoiscopal Church, North Hills, will host the "Run For the Cross" 5K race in North Park to benefit Jeremiah's Place Crisis Nursery, located in East Liberty. 

The hope is to raise awareness and funds all while being a visible example of what it means to be the Body of Christ.

 "It's more about being a light in our community and doing Christ's work," said Marie Johnson, race organizer.

The event is not exclusive to church members. The 5K is open to anyone and everyone. Participants may walk, run, or volunteer to help with the event.

Lace up your shoes, join fellow parishioners, neighbors, friends and members of the diocese for this special 5K in beautiful North Park this fall. To register or get more information on the ways you can participate as a walker, runner, volunteer or sponsor please go to www.christchurchnorthhills.org/cecnh5k/
