Jericho Road Ministries Holds Second Annual 5K on the West Side of Buffalo

Jericho Road Ministries’ second annual 5K, “Run Along Jericho Road,” walk/run will be held June 15, 2013. The event will begin at 9am, at the corner of Gelston Street and Breckenridge Street, in zip code 14213 in Buffalo.  Eric Budin, Director of Partner Development for Jericho Road Ministries, comments: “We are delighted this year to have the event sanctioned by the USATF, as well as officially certified and timed…”

The event is designed to allow more people to encounter the West Side, to show residents that we, as the family of God, embrace them, and to raise funds to support the ongoing work of Jericho Road Ministries (JRM). JRM offers every man, woman and child opportunities to hear and see the gospel of Jesus Christ by facilitating wellness and self-sufficiency in the lives of refugee and low-income community members.  The walk/run will take participants through areas where homes and businesses are unique to the West Side.

Pre-registration is encouraged. The cost is $20. Details, a registration form and waiver, as well as a map of the route, are available at jrm-buffalo.org.  A new feature this year is the option to register as a team to encourage group participation.  Parking will be available at Rich Products’ parking lots located at Niagara and Breckenridge Streets.

Volunteers are also needed in many capacities including set up/tear down, registration table, and more. Contact Eric Budin at eric.budin@jrm-buffalo.org  or 348-3000 x405 for further information.

Jericho Road Ministries is a member of the Sierra Leone Alliance and a Kingdom Come ministry partner, helping us reach every man, woman and child with the gospel of Jesus Christ in Buffalo, NY and Sierra Leone, Africa.
