workout for hope 5K

Saturday June 9, 2018

8AM: 5K   |  9AM: Mini Mile

Start and Finish at The GP

Team up with Community Church of Greenwood & The Gathering Place

as we support the fight against Human Trafficking.

What is Workout for Hope: Our goal is to create awareness and to provide health and wellness services to the women at the Hope Center Indy, a Christ-centered residential campus committed to healing the personal lives and building the professional lives of women who are coming out of human trafficking. 

Net proceeds from the Workout for Hope 5K will go to the Hope Center Indy as they combat human trafficking, the fastest growing criminal industry in the world. They will be purchasing necessary

equipment for a weight room, cardio room, and weekly fitness classes, each taught by volunteer

professionals who are passionate about this mission. Providing each of them with more than a workout: an opportunity to build healthy relationships with others. We believe when relationships are established, changes can be made, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

At Community Church of Greenwood we believe in a God who desires justice and restoration for the marginalized (James 1:27). God also desires renewal in the lives of His people and that the actions of our faith would produce works that would bring Him glory and us blessing! We want to be a light that reaches into the dark places in our community and helps rescue the captives.

Isaiah 58

6 “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:

to loose the chains of injustice

    and untie the cords of the yoke,

to set the oppressed free

    and break every yoke?

7 Is it not to share your food with the hungry

    and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—

when you see the naked, to clothe them,

    and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?

8 Then your light will break forth like the dawn,

    and your healing will quickly appear;

then your righteousness[a] will go before you,

    and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.

9 Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;

    you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.

“If you do away with the yoke of oppression,

    with the pointing finger and malicious talk,

10 and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry

    and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,

then your light will rise in the darkness,

    and your night will become like the noonday."
