It Takes a Village 5K

Sponsored by Orthopedic Associates

Raising Funds for Naomi's Village in Kenya

We are proud to announce the 1st Annual “It Takes A Village” 5K Run/Walk and Kids 1 Mile Fun Run. This event will benefit Naomi’s Village Children’s Home in Kenya and will take place on Saturday, October 19th, 2013 in Highland Village.


All race revenue will be used to help build Naomi’s Village’s new school, Cornerstone Preparatory Academy.


Naomi’s Village is a children’s home in Maai Mahiu, Kenya founded by Dr. Robert Mendonsa and his wife Julie from Flower Mound, TX. Naomi’s Village welcomed its first children home in January 2011, and now houses 44 orphans with a goal of 100 by 2016.


Over 2.4 million orphans presently exist in Kenya alone. Naomi’s Village has been founded not simply to rescue a few of those parentless millions, but to create a well-equipped army of leaders to begin engaging this problem effectively on the home front.


We want you to be a part of this vision and we invite you to join the Naomi’s Village family in giving back hope to these precious children as a race participant, volunteer and/or race sponsor.
