Operation Christmas Child 10K/5K

Button - Run Walk Medal

OCTOBER 10, 2015

An eternal message in a simple shoe box…
Operation Christmas Child brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations worldwide through simple, gift-filled shoe boxes. These shoe boxes open doors to present evangelistic materials to the children and their families that tell the Good News of Jesus Christ and God’s love.

The funds raised from this race are sent to Samaritan’s Purse to help with shipping costs of the shoe box gifts.

Operation Christmas Child is a shoe box project of Samaritan’s Purse. Shoe boxes are filled with school supplies, toy, necessity items and a note of encouragement for a child overseas suffering due to disaster, disease, war, terrorism, famine or poverty. For more information contact the Area Collection Center in El Dorado at 870-862-4264 or go to www.samaritanspurse.org. [Read more…]

Camp Quality 5K

SEPTEMBER 12, 2015

Camp Quality is all about Hope for the Future . . .
The mission of Camp Quality USA is to establish and sustain nationwide community-based camping experiences and ongoing support programs for children with cancer and their families.
Our vision is that all children with cancer and their families find joy and hope through shared experiences and an ongoing support system.
The goals and aims of Camp Quality are simple, yet so very important.

  • To allow children to be children again.
  •  To create stress-free environments that offer exciting activities, foster new friendships, and help give children courage, motivation and emotional strength.
  •  To give the families of children with cancer a much-needed rest, knowing that the highest quality program has been selected to keep their child happy, a companion has been assigned to ensure their safety, and medical supervision will be provided at every camp.
  •  To give the child hope in that the camping experience will be such fun they will look forward to and anticipate their next camp, and that the memories from their special week will sustain them in the weeks and months ahead as they continue their medical treatment.

As long as there are children with cancer, we will strive to care for them. Camp Quality is all about Hope—hope for a successful treatment, hope for a cure, and hope for the future.
*** A movie night in the park will take place following the 5K Run/Walk and the awards ceremony
