PLENTY OF FAMILY FUN ACTIVITIES!
In July of 2014, several staff members and 9 students set out to accomplish a goal...complete the Bass Pro Half-Marathon. Their slogan: "One Team, One Dream, Finishers!" That first marathon team accomplished that goal with every member finishing in under 2 hours and 25 minutes.
In March, two more teams will set out to conquer the Little Rock, Arkansas Half & Full-Marathons, respectively. The students on these teams have learned the value of hard work, dedication, and teamwork. They have learned that they can accomplish more than they ever imagined and that relying on other people to help you along the way is vital.
So why host a 5K? We want our students and their families to be able to join together with the larger Ozarks community to support one another. To take a stand against addiction in our community and to support our current and future students who are so desperately in need of encouragement. All funds raised during this run will go towards building a Home of Hope dormitory capable of house 48 students (double our current capacity) and 6 additional on-site staff members! Your support can quite literally help to save lives and put Hope within reach of families battling teen addiction.
So join us as "One Team" with "One Dream" and become "Finishers!"
