Miracle Hill in Motion Brings Upstate Together to Support Homeless

Children participating in previous Miracle Hill event

Multi-county event will feature cycling, 5k walks, and kids’ ninja warrior course

GREENVILLE, SC (March 23, 2018) - Miracle Hill Ministries will host its first annual Miracle Hill in Motion on June 2, 2018, a multi-county fundraising event featuring cycling, 5k walks and a kids’ ninja warrior course. Participants will engage in fun, challenging activities while raising awareness about the needs of the homeless and support for Miracle Hill’s shelters and programs.

“Homelessness affects every county in the Upstate, and Miracle Hill’s footprint to serve the homeless extends across the Upstate as well, so this event is a unique way for people to show that together we can make a difference,” said Cassy Tuten, Events Coordinator for Miracle Hill. Last year alone, Miracle Hill cared for nearly 2,800 homeless children and adults.

Miracle Hill in Motion will include cycling route distances of 32, 44, 69 or 80 miles. All routes will begin and end at Miracle Hill’s Children’s Home, located off Miracle Hill Rd. in Pickens. The KidRaiser ninja warrior course for ages 4 – 10 will also be held at the Children’s Home. A 5k walk for all ages will be held in Spartanburg and in Gaffney with the Spartanburg route beginning at The Hangar (101 N. Liberty St.,) and the Gaffney route beginning at Limestone College (1115 College Dr.). Children have the opportunity to raise funds for the homeless and earn prizes by signing up as a KidRaiser and participating in any of the events.

Miracle Hill is grateful for the many community partners making this event possible including Praise Cathedral and Ingles Markets, (Presenting Sponsors), WSPA, His Radio and Grace Outdoor (Media Sponsors), First Baptist Spartanburg and Limestone College (Location Sponsors).

Early bird discounted registration continues through April 15th, but registration for all events will be open through June 2nd.
