The Founder’s Day 5K 

The Founder’s Day 5K is not your average virtual 5K event. We invite you to be a part of a 6-week journey as we prepare the mind, body, and soul with a run and walking training program, fun challenges, meaningful devotions, and stats about the children you are running for. You can make the race your own, by running, walking, or adjusting the distance, all to help children in Georgia.

The Mustard Seed 1K 

Our children’s Mustard Seed 1K gives children an enriching opportunity to learn about the importance of helping children and families in needhow to actively support the children & families at Wellroot, and celebrating on May 1st by running the Mustard Seed 1K.
