The fifth annual Steeple to Steeple run to benefit the United Methodist Children’s Home is set for Feb. 23 in West Homewood.
“This is all about the mission of helping vulnerable kids in Alabama,” said Rebecca Morris, director of marketing and external affairs at UMCH. “What the Children’s Home does is provide a safe home for kids that can’t live with their biological families. That can be from abuse, abandonment or neglect.”
Instead of starting and finishing at churches like some of the previous years, the 2019 event will start and end at Seeds Coffee Co.
“I like the idea of this becoming more of a community event,” Morris said. “I don’t want someone that is not necessarily attending a church to go, ‘That’s not for me.’”
The event will have fun run, 5K and 10K options. There is also a virtual option for out-of-town supporters and a “sleep in” option for those who want to support the event but would rather stay in bed. For more information, visit Steeple2Steeple.com.
