Inaugural Run on Faith held in Girard

Posted: Updated:
GIRARD, Ohio -

The inaugural Run on Faith kicked off Saturday morning at Saint Rose Church in Girard.

110 runners made their way through the three-mile course that stretched throughout the streets of Girard.

The parish wanted to create an event that was able to help out local charities, but at the same time celebrate community and faith. 

"It's always a big community event. We are trying to raise awareness health and fitness, but also we are trying to raise awareness for the different charities. How we are helping the community helping out everyone outside the church. Those in need, that's what we are all here for," says race organizer Dave Zatvarnicky.

Proceeds from the race went to the Dorothy Day House, the Emmanuel Care Center in Girard, and Catholic Charities.
