Blake's Run

Saturday, November 04, 2017

Location: c|Life Sunnyvale Campus, 610 Hwy. 80 E., Sunnyvale, TX US 75182

On Nov. 4, we’re hosting our Fifth Annual Blake's Run 5K! For the last couple of years, we’ve had a blast turning the event into a color run, so we're continuing the tradition. And, this year, the run ends with a glow party!

We've gotten rid of the timers, so there are no winners, losers or awards — just fun! All proceeds from Blake’s Run will be used to send people on mission trips throughout the U.S. and around the world.

Why is it called Blake’s Run?

On December 23, 2001, Blake Schoenrock, who was 10 years old at the time, wrote a note and wrapped it up like a Christmas present. Every year, Blake would put the package under the family Christmas tree, but no one was allowed to open it, and no one other than Blake knew what was inside.

Blake went on to live his life well and was enjoying his time as a Texas A&M student when, just 10 days after completing a triathlon, he suffered a major heart attack. After a courageous and well-fought six-day battle, Blake entered into the presence of God.

Following his death, Blake’s parents opened the little gift that their son had placed gently under the tree every Christmas for the past 10 years. What they found was more than just a note — it was a reminder of what had been most important to their son. The note read, “Tell the world about Jesus.”

Blake was an amazing athlete, an incredible student, an honorable son and, most importantly, a devoted and passionate follower of Jesus. In honor of his life, and in keeping with his desire to see the name of Christ exalted, we invite you to join us for Blake’s Run.

How can I help?

You can support Blake’s Run in a few different ways:

Runners (Ages 8 & Older)

The registration fee for runners is $25. All runners who register prior to Oct. 25 are guaranteed to receive a t-shirt and a color packet.

Runner Signup (Ages 8 & Up)


Runners (Ages 7 & Under)

These children, whether running or riding in a stroller, can participate for free! We just want a record of them being at the race and, more importantly, would like a guardian to sign a waiver. While registering them, you have the option of purchasing a shirt for them. (Shirts are only guaranteed for those who register prior to Oct. 25).

Runner Signup (Ages 7 & Under)


Sleepers

Sleepers pay the same $25 registration fee as runners and get the same t-shirt (if registered prior to Oct. 25), but they get to sleep in during the actual color run.
