Put your running shoes on and head to Morganton, North Carolina for a couple of events being held by the local Casting for Hope Team. March 26 at 8:00am is the 3td Annual Morning of Hope 5K Run and Walk. Dr. Tom Bland will officiate a sunrise morning worship honoring Holy Saturday under Shelter Three at Catawba Meadows Park. The 5K will kick off following that service and run along the Catawba River Greenway. It’s a beautiful course for a nice morning run or walk to support a great cause, and we hope to see you there. You can register online here or sign up the morning of to get clocked in.
April 8-10 in Bakersville and Spruce Pine, North Carolina is the 5th Annual Casting for Hope Gold-Level Fly-Fishing Competition. If you have ever wanted to learn about fly fishing or want to improve your skills, or just like sitting by a river taking it all in while helping a good cause; here’s your chance. You can become a stream monitor for Casting for Hope. It’s an easy, but absolutely indispensable job.
You follow a world-class fly-fisherman to the river and measure the fish he catches and record those numbers; it’s that easy! While the event is well-covered for Saturday, they can use about 15 more hands on deck for Friday afternoon and 15 more hands on Sunday as well. All volunteers receive an official 2016 t-shirt and meals during their volunteer shifts. Want to sign up? Contact John Zimmerman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
