The Congregation Challenge is a friendly competition among the local churches and synagogues that support HomeStretch. The congregation that generates the most money either through race registration fees, donations or both will be presented with the Run the River Congregation Trophy (along with bragging rights) to display for the following year.
THE 2017 CONGREGATION CHALLENGE RESULTS!!!
We had another amazing response to the Challenge. We had 17 organizations participate and each made a significant contribution which helped make the 2017 event another sell-out with almost 1,500 runners/walkers who, with our sponsors, raised over $60,000.
The results show the same Top 5, but in a different order. St. Andrew, which was 2nd in 2016, powered into a strong lead and never looked back. North Point Community Church, 3rd in 2016, increased its results substantially and moved into second. Perennial powerhouse, Roswell United Methodist Church, put in an always strong effort for 3rd.
Many thanks to each congregation and we hope to see even better results in 2018!!
