harvest hustle 2013

On September 7, 2013, 9:00am, Reunion Church is partnering with the Plainfield Recreation and Aquatic Center to host our third Harvest Hustle, a special 5k run/walk to help raise funds for Plainfield’s Christian Support Center, which – among other things – hosts a food pantry that feeds over 300 families a month and has recently started Buddy Bags, an initiative to offer a weekend’s worth of food (each weekend) to kids in the reduced-lunch program. If you would like to participate in the 5k, click here to register. Please note that each participant must fill out their own registration form and waiver. Those who register before August 23, will receive a t-shirt on the day of the event. This year we will once again be hosting a Kids’ Fun Run at 10:00am (after the main 5k event) for kids 12 and under. For more information concerning our Fun Run event – and the main event – download our brochure.

To help raise the most funds possible, and to provide our participants with the excellent experience they deserve for taking part in the Harvest Hustle, we need area business leaders to partner with us. We are on the lookout for area businesses and area business leaders that would be willing to give us a donation to help us host the event and assure a solid financial base for our gift to the pantry. We’re looking for gifts of $250 (gold level), $100 (silver level), and $50 (bronze level). Aside from financial gifts, we are also looking for prizes to give to our top runners. Of course, we are certainly open to folks providing both — a donation and a prize of some sort! Any help would be greatly appreciated and would go a long way toward helping the Buddy Bags program. If you are an area business leader, or work for an area business that you suspect would love to be a part of something like the Harvest Hustle, please send us an email.
