God’s race, our feet!
Members of Calvary Lutheran Church in Richland Hills had a great time at the 3rd Annual Run for the Hills 5K and 1M on Saturday! The rain cleared out just in time, and they enjoyed supporting Upbring and Richland Hills Animal Services.
Thank you to all participants and to the fabulous volunteers! Information on pictures will be posted soon—check Calvary’s Facebook page!
