The 1st Annual HOI 5K was a huge success thanks to all of our wonderful participants, sponsors, and dedicated volunteers! There were over 135 participants and we raised over $8,000 for HOI’s medical, dental, and clean water programs!


HOI raises all of its own funds to provide medical care and medicines for approximately 10,000 patients per year. We are in constant need of support for our medical programs which is why in addition to the Fun Run, we launched the Family Health Partners (FHP) program last fall. Through this program, you can continue the same impact you had by participating in the Fun Run, but through FHP, your support will be year-round!  For $39 a month, you will fund medical, dental, physical therapy, and prenatal care programs… as well as making sure our pharmacy stays stocked with medicines for folks in the Agalta Valley. Learn more here.


A big shout out goes to SR Homes, Brand Bank, Chick-Fil-A, and Hamilton Mill United Methodist Church for their support. We are so thankful for their partnership/sponsorship of our 1st Annual 5K. We look forward to partnering with you again. I would also like to recognize Kristin Corbin and Fran Lewis for their tireless efforts in making the Fun Run a reality.


If you would like to help organize or sponsor the 2nd Annual HOI 5K that will take place in 2017, please let me know. To all those that participated, thank you! Now, you have a whole year to start training for  next year’s 5K… and we can’t wait to see you again!
