Our 15th annual Family Ride Run Walk will feature the same beloved aspects of the event from years past… and we’re also excited to share the following new additions:

  • 5K FUN RUN: For the past few years, running has been an informal option for pre-event virtual fundraisers. Now, you will have the option of selecting a “5K fun run” as your route option when registering to participate at your chosen site.
  • ALL ARE WELCOME: There is now an official fellowship-only option at registration, for those who would like to join us for our picnic but don’t plan to participate in a walk, run or bike route.
  • FUNDRAISING 2.0: We’ve switched to a new, more user-friendly online registration and fundraising platform. When you register for the event online, you’ll automatically get a personal fundraising webpage — and can also join your congregation’s online fundraising team. Teams with five or more members will get their Team Name added to each members’ event t-shirt! (PS: Our countdown emails for the next two weeks will take a deeper dive into individual and team fundraising, so be sure to email your questions on these topics to robyn@outreachforhope.org.)
  • ALL IN THE NAME: We’re excited to be adding “Family” back to our event name, and adopting the tagline “Together in Hope.” We hope you’ll invite your family — whether that’s a partner or spouse, roommate or neighbor, kids, pets, extended or chosen family — as we all come together as one big Synod Family in Christ!

Can’t wait to celebrate both new and old traditions with you all at our Family Ride Run Walk on Saturday, September 24!


Help us get the party started by inviting three friends or family members to register.
