Duck&Run 5K

A local youth ministry is celebrating its second anniversary this month with a Duck Dynasty themed 5K and outdoor worship service.

Undivided Hearts, which began a cross-denominational weekly service in November 2011, is hosting the Duck&Run 5K on Saturday, Nov. 30, in downtown Houston.

Participants in the fun run and walk are encouraged to wear camouflage or hunter orange clothing. Facial hair –– fake or real –– is also suggested. Prizes will be awarded for the best beards.

Following the race, there will be bonfires and food for sale in the organization’s parking lot. The weekly worship service will be held outdoors that night as well with Ryan Munson and other leaders of the ministry speaking.

Cost is $20 and includes a T-shirt for the race, which begins at 4 p.m. at the Undivided Hearts building on the corner of First and Chestnut streets. The pre-registration deadline is Nov. 23. Forms may be picked up or dropped off at Landmark Bank and the Houston Herald.

“Whether you want to walk or run the race or just come for the bonfires, food and worship, we hope everyone who is able will come to the anniversary event,” Munson said. “The community has been so gracious in its support of Undivided Hearts. It will be a night of fun and celebration of what God has done and continues to do in our town.”

Undivided Hearts formed in the summer 2011 under the leadership of multiple youth leaders from area churches. The Duck&Run is the group’s fourth 5K race during that time. The events are the biggest fundraisers for the ministry.
