On Nov. 3, we’re hosting our Sixth Annual Blake's Run 5K! For the last couple of years, we’ve had a blast turning the event into a color run, but this year we decided to replace the powder with a chip timer to make things a little more competitive! If you aren’t competitive, no worries — just run for fun!
We will have cash prizes this year for the overall winners in each age and gender category. All proceeds from Blake’s Run will be used to send people on mission trips throughout the U.S. and around the world.
Where: c|Life Forney Campus
(All pre-race activities will happen at the church, and runners will be dismissed from there to go to the Forney Community Park for the actual race.)
When: Nov. 3, 2018
On December 23, 2001, Blake Schoenrock, who was 10 years old at the time, wrote a note and wrapped it up like a Christmas present. Every year, Blake would put the package under the family Christmas tree, but no one was allowed to open it, and no one other than Blake knew what was inside.
Blake went on to live his life well and was enjoying his time as a Texas A&M student when, just 10 days after completing a triathlon, he suffered a major heart attack. After a courageous and well-fought six-day battle, Blake entered into the presence of God.
Following his death, Blake’s parents opened the little gift that their son had placed under the tree every Christmas for the past 10 years. What they found was more than just a note — it was a reminder of what had been most important to their son. The note read, “Tell the world about Jesus.”
Blake was an amazing athlete, an incredible student, an honorable son and, most importantly, a devoted and passionate follower of Jesus. In honor of his life, and in keeping with his desire to see the name of Christ exalted, we invite you to join us for Blake’s Run.
You can support Blake’s Run in a few different ways:
These children, whether running or riding in a stroller, can participate for free! We just want a record of them being at the race and, more importantly, would like a guardian to sign a waiver. If you would like to purchase a t-shirt for them you can do so through our registration website or you may contact Becca at firstname.lastname@example.org to order. They are $10/shirt. Shirts are only guaranteed for those who register prior to Oct. 22. *Prices are based on the participant’s age on the day of the race.
The registration fee for these runners is $20. All runners who register prior to Oct. 22 are guaranteed to receive a t-shirt and a race bag. *Prices are based on the participant’s age on the day of the race.
The registration fee for these runners is $30. All runners who register prior to Oct. 22 are guaranteed to receive a t-shirt and a race bag. *Prices are based on the participant’s age on the day of the race.
Sleepers pay the same $30 registration fee as runners and get the same t-shirt (if registered prior to Oct. 22), but they get to sleep in during the actual run.

Memory Mile Placards: These offer a unique and meaningful way for you to pay honor to the memory of your loved one. Blake’s parents know first hand the pain of letting go, but they also understand the joy that comes from remembering a life well lived. Each Memory Mile placard will be made of corrugated plastic and will have a picture of your loved one, his or her name and an optional scripture reference. The signs will be placed along the run and will be given to you at the end of the race.
