Connect to a bigger dream

The 8th annual Dream Run 5K is presented by Manna University* and the Manna Dream Center.** Both of these non-profit organizations have a passion for people in their community and around the world.

That’s why we’re excited that a portion of the profits of this event will go towards student scholarships at Manna University and local community projects with the Manna Dream Center.

This is a great event for the whole family, whether you’re joining for the Dream Run 5K, the 1K Kid’s Fun Run, or both!  Join us at this event and Connect to a Bigger Dream as we raise awareness for these two local non-profit organizations. Manna University has a dream to educate, equip, and empower emerging leaders to change the world! The Manna Dream Center has a dream to reach people with the love of Christ by meeting both their physical and spiritual needs! What is your dream?
