Joplin, MO - Sunday, October 26, 2014 was the 3rd Annual God's Resort 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run. God's Resort is a not-for-profit organization started seven years ago under the prayer and support of many members of College Heights and other churches around the area. An area in town that was once referred to as "the Last Resort" has become "God's Resort." We seek to provide affordable, dignified places to live, as well as surround residents with healthy relationships and spiritual guidance. For many residents, God's Resort is a place for new beginnings. We also reach beyond the 23 Apartments to the wider neighborhood. Sunday night fellowships are held which include a meal provided by small groups from area churches. At these gatherings we have had as many as 80 people show up from around the neighborhood!
Thank you to all our sponsors, volunteers and participants for helping to support such a great cause! Hope to see everyone next year for the 4th Annual God's Resort 5K.
