Rice & Beans 5K Rumble
On behalf of Truth Ministries, thank you so much for coming out to the 2018 Rice and Beans 5K Rumble. The weather was sunny and perfect which gave us a great turnout. Thanks to you and all our sponsors, we raised over $11,000 to support our Haitian sisters and brothers. This money will go a long way to help feed our friends in need. Please put next year’s race on your calendar (11 May 2019) as we will once again RUN HUNGRY for Haiti.

The Rice and Beans 5K Rumble is held each year and is a family friendly 5K run/walk to benefit Truth Evangelistic Ministry and its efforts to support the people of Haiti.
The course is flat and shady through the neighborhoods around Truth Evangelistic Ministry. To better identify with the Haitian people, we are encouraging runners and walkers who are physically able to forgo breakfast and RUN HUNGRY. 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.
