For only $30, fans will have the opportunity to run alongside some of their favorite artists as they support the amazing work of the Hands & Feet Project.
"The K-LOVE Fan Awards was a fantastic event last year," said Mark Stuart, Executive Director and Co-Founder of the Hands & Feet Project.

For only $30 per person, each participant receives registration to the race, an artist swag bag, a race t-shirt, as well as a fundraising page to help raise funds and awareness for the Hands & Feet Project.
A few of the celebrity artists already confirmed to participate in this year's Run For Love 5K are the members of Audio Adrenaline as well as Matthew West, Tenth Avenue North, KJ-52, Citizen Way, Josh Wilson, Finding Favour, Rhett Walker Band, Sanctus Real and City Harbor. K-LOVE will also have their own team, with a few of their on-air hosts running for the cause. More artists will be announced soon.
Another 5K is already slated to be held in September during Orlando's CMB/Disney World's Night Of Joy music event. Further details will be released shortly!
In 2004, the members of Audio Adrenaline founded the Hands & Feet Project. Inspired by fan reaction to the band’s song “Hands and Feet,” HAF is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing long-term, family-style care for orphaned and abandoned children with the love of Christ. They strive to raise a generation of orphaned children who will grow up to reach their God- given potential, while empowering first world citizens to partner with them in service at home and abroad.
The organization broke ground on their first Children’s village in Cyvadier, a small town on the Southern coast near Jacmel, and began their journey of serving the forgotten children of the impoverished Caribbean nation. Currently tending to over 70 children in Cyvadier, a second village opened in Grand Goave in 2008 and is caring for 30 children.
