Join us for our 8th Annual Run For Giving 5k Run/Walk!
Join us at the Lansing River Trail on Saturday, October 10th for the Run For Giving 5k Run/Walk. We will have a flexible start time from 9:00 to 10:00 am to allow for social distancing at the start of the race, along the course, and at the finish line. We have a virtual option too! All proceeds from this event will support our food, health and counseling programs. Registration is currently $30 and will increase to $35 on October 3rd, so don't wait to sign up! Check out our T-Shirt and Medal below.
On Wednesday September 23rd from 4-8 pm, the Panera located at 6310 S Cedar St will donate a portion of the proceeds to us. All you have to do is bring in the flyer below, show a picture to the cashier, or use code PRFUND if you order online!
So let's talk aspirations: I want a world where no child has to squint in the back of the classroom for lack of a pair of glasses that their parents cannot afford. I want a world where a child suffocated by asthma has access to an inhaler. I want a world where a family doesn't have to choose between rent and groceries. I want a world where maintaining one's health doesn't feel impossible.
And I hope that beyond the mending of broken bones, and sometimes broken hearts, beyond providing the medications, hot meals, hats & gloves, and counseling. I hope that we have helped children and families feel loved, cared for, and spiritually connected.
Our First Baby Bag Distribution was a Huge Success!
On August 15th, Cristo Rey passed out Baby Bags and groceries to families in the area. Though we were not able to hold a community Baby Shower and Health Fair as in years past, we still wanted to be a resource for area families!
This event would not have been possible without the support of Blue Cross Complete, the City of Lansing and the Greater Lansing Food Bank Mobile Pantry.
