Foster Care 5K set for Saturday

Ada — Trinity Baptist Church is sponsoring the Foster Care 5K Saturday for the fourth straight year. The name, however, has been changed.

Previously, the event was called The Jesus Day 5K. Since the event assists families of foster care parents, the church decided to change the name to the Foster Care 5K.

The church works with the Oklahoma Department of Health and Human Services to benefit foster parents in Pontotoc County. Participants may sign up on line by going to, according to Chris Snowden, associate pastor.

This year’s event is expected to attract 140 foster children and their parents. They will also be the recipients of a special room full of gifts and much needed items, which will be purchased with some of the revenues from this race.

This year’s race begins at the Kerr Dome on the campus of East Central University.

Starting time is 8:30 a.m. with pre-registration beginning at 7:30 a.m. at the dome Saturday.

 For more information, call Snowden at 580-320-2463.
