First Annual Hope~Run~Austin 5K a Success!

Larry opened us up in prayer to kick off the race. Thanks Larry!


It was a very cold morning on October 7, 2012 and most of our registered runners braved the weather to begin their morning supporting a great cause! After a few announcements we prayed then headed for the start line!

Beginning with the shot of a cannon… maybe



The race was set to go with the shot of the cannon. Unfortunately, the cannon experienced some technical difficulties so we said BOOM instead. It actually made for a good laugh! It was so cool to just have a cannon in our presence!

Ready, set , ….GO!





And off we go!!!!

They’re off to an awesome start!





It is so chilly but in no time these runners will be warmed up!





Only three miles to go from here!

Thank you

… to our volunteers! We could not have done this without your help! Also thanks to Road ID who supplied the race bibs and six gifts cards to our top finishers! Another HUGE thanks to our DJ, Wendy, from WCI Entertainment. She did a great job and kept us all pumped up! Thank you to Tropical Smoothie for opening their doors early for us so we could come warm up after the race with some great food! Make sure you go back and use those coupons that are in your race packet. Thanks to Texas Independent Relay for setting up the equipment on the race course! The starting/finish line looked great! Thanks to The Allure Apartments for supplying the water! Loved the koozies on there!

Thank you to Allure for supplying the water for our runners!

Thanks to Larry Megason with Restore A Voice for beginning our race in prayer!

And finally, I want to thank all our runners for coming out in the cold weather and uniting us together by supporting our cause.
