On Saturday, July 13, 2019, our church supported the Bastille Day Race in downtown Fenton. Each year, this race generates over $20,000 for the Genesee County Habitat for Humanity chapter and also brought thousands of visitors into Fenton. The 15k race began at 7:45 am while the 5k run/walk began at 8:00 am. Both races were wrapping up by 10:00 am. Food and entertainment were available behind city hall where the race results were also posted.
Our church supplied five volunteers who assisted with traffic control at 5 neighborhood corners plus 2 participants in the race. Thank you to the volunteers for assisting in this worthwhile cause. Everyone had a great time! Our church also provides financial support for the local Habitat chapter through our mission budget; this is only possible with the support of our members through the operating budget.
