About This Event
Join us for our 12th Annual Swazi 5k in Bethany, Oklahoma. Proceeds from this event are used by Bethany First Nazarene to provide scholarships to send volunteer teams to Swaziland, to support the Swaziland HIV/AIDS Task Force to provide home-based care to those with AIDS with the goal to delay orphan-hood for the children of Swaziland and to support the Swaziland RFM Hospital delivery room to prevent the transfer of HIV to newborn babies. A portion of the proceeds will also be used to benefit the children of Bethany, Oklahoma through the Bethany Foundation for the After-School Program. Registration includes a t-shirt and goody bag. The 5k is a USATF sanctioned race. All but $5 of your registration fee may count as a charitable tax deduction. A tent with medical personnel will be on-site.
