5K Supports Goochland Young Life

More than 70 participants came out for the Goochland Young Life 5K on Saturday Nov. 2. Natalie Kretzer posted the fastest time for all finishers at 22:54. (A list of top finishers is at the bottom of this post.)

The runners and walkers got their start at Goochland High School and followed a route that took them over a somewhat rolling course down Bulldog Way and into the nearby Holland Hills neighborhood. 

The 5K’s success is due in part to more than a dozen businesses in the Goochland community who came on board as sponsors. A big thank you goes to Custom Brick and Stone Corporation who, for the second year, was the 5K’s top sponsor. Goochland Dentistry and 250 Sports Grill also returned for a second years as leadership-level sponsors and were joined by first-time sponsor Team Logistics.

Additional 5K sponsors were: Brooks Auto Sales, Inc., EZ Ship, Goochland Family YMCA, Goochland Physical Therapy, Hudgins Dentistry, Live Free Group of Richmond, Parker Properties, Inc., State Farm Insurance, and von Schilling Lawn Care.  New Balance supplied prizes to 5K participants.

Proceeds from the 5K support the local Young Life staff person and volunteer leaders.

Young Life Christmas Tree Sale Will Help Send Kids to Camp!

Would you love a high quality, freshly cut Fraser Fir Christmas tree or wreath for your home? Would you love to have it DELIVERED?! We can help with that!

It’s Goochland Young Life’s Christmas Tree Sale, and a portion of every purchase will support Goochland students who’d love to go to Young Life camp next summer. You can support a specific Goochland student you know and love, or support overall camp costs. The bigger the tree, the bigger the camp scholarship!

For just $20 extra, we’ll deliver the tree to your house on Saturday Dec. 7. If you’d prefer, you can pick up your tree from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Dec. 7 at the Funkhouser’s house on Gathright Drive in the Goochland Courthouse area.

Order forms and checks must be returned to the Goochland Young Life office by Saturday Nov. 23. Email Erin Lucero to get your order form.

It’s a great gift: You’ll help a Goochland kid get to camp so they can hear the greatest news ever!
