About This Activity

Jovenes en Camino 5K Walk/Run:

On September 30th, 2017, Jovenes en Camino will be hosting the second annual 5K Walk and Run at Lipscomb University!

All proceeds will be going directly to the work that is being done in Tegucigalpa through Jovenes en Camino, a facility that focuses on rescuing boys who are orphans, have been rescued from extremely abusive situations, or have been forced into the streets by parents who are unable or unwilling to provide for them. While some shelters provide for the immediate physical needs of these children, Jovenes en Camino strives to minister to the complete person holistically through physical, mental, emotional, educational, and spiritual care.

El Zamarano, the first dorm of Jovenes en Camino, first opened its doors in 2002, and has since then grown significantly and now includes three residence buildings, dining hall, library, carpentry shop, farm, offices, guest house, and space for recreation and future growth.

Whether you are an experienced runner or a seasoned walker, join us as we continue our efforts in caring for the boys of Jovenes en Camino. We hope to see you there!
