Rice & Beans 5K Rumble
Saturday May 14th, 2016
On behalf of Truth Ministries, thank you so much for coming out to the Rice and Beans 5K Rumble this year. We had excellent weather and an excellent turn out; our highest in the six years of this event. Thanks to you, we raised over $10,000 to support our Haitian brothers and sisters. This money will go a long way to help feed our friends in need. Please consider joining us again next year as we RUN HUNGRY for Haiti.
The results are posted at the Northwest Florida Track Club site, http://nwftc.com/racing/race-result/?id=358

There will be plenty of food following the race to silence the RUMBLE in your tummy. Post-race food includes rice and beans, pulled pork sandwiches, and homemade desserts.
Awards: Overall, master, and grand master male/female for the run and top 3 in standard 5 year age groups. Overall and master male/female for the walk plus the top 5 male and top 5 female finishers. All Kid’s Run participants will receive an award.
The Rice & Beans Rumble is a 5K run/walk benefiting Truth Evangelistic Ministries (TEM), a Fort Walton Beach Christian organization that has been ministering to the needs of Haitians for over 15 years. All proceeds of the Rice & Beans 5K Rumble will go to TEM in its efforts to benefit the untold hungry in the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere.
Thank you for your generous partnership in our RACE to fill the Haitian people with a nourishing meal and a helping of hope. Join with us to make a significant difference in the lives of Haitians.
