One for the Books: Dream Run 2019

by Frank Brazell

Last Saturday dawned as a perfect Fall morning for the participants of the Fourth Annual Manna U Dream Run: Cool but not cold, with a light breeze. Coming on the heels of last year’s event, which had to be rescheduled due to Hurricane Florence, the conditions made for a great turnout. This event broke every measurable record for success; more participants, more partners and affiliates, and more sponsors. Perhaps most importantly, this year will break another record: More dreams fulfilled.

This event, a collaboration between Manna University and the Fayetteville Dream Center, exists to raise funds and community awareness, not just heart rates. More information about both of these non-profit organizations, and how the Manna U Dream Run makes a difference, can be found in our post from last week.

A special thanks to everyone who participated in this event. Whether you were a participant, a sponsor, or a Downtown Partner, your contribution added to a bigger dream, and will continue to have an impact long after race day.


It's not too late to apply for our Spring 2023 semester!
