On October 21, 2017, we hosted our 8th annual 5K fundraising event at Shelby Farms Park in Memphis, TN! The weather was perfect for our awesome runners, fundraisers, and volunteers to do what they came to do: run to empower the people of Sudan!
A big thank you to everyone who came out, fundraised, volunteered, and helped recruit runners for this year's 5K! And a big thank you to our sponsors!
This year, you and 93 other registered runners raised and gave $6,903 for our school in Yida Refugee Camp. Great work!
Runner times are posted! SEE TIMING RESULTS »
All 10 of our fundraising-entry runners for the event hit or exceeded their fundraising commitment! Amazing! Thanks Greg Siskind, Mark Hackett, Darrin Ruddy, Annie Gorman, Celina Kilhefner, Vaughan Meiss, Elijah Berry, Craig Simmons, Emilia Cration, and Madeline Barnhart for fundraising!
We do have a few extra event t-shirts left over. BUY ONE HERE »

Eden's Run 5K is just one of several small steps we are taking to empower the Sudanese people to end the crisis they face in our lifetime. We have a number of additional opportunities coming up that you can join us in.
The people of Sudan are overcoming two of the greatest challenges facing humanity today: war and genocide. Operation Broken Silence is working to accelerate their ability to generate lasting change through media and mobilization, education and emergency response, and advocacy programs. Here's a few ways you can join us:
1. Come To Our Next Event. We have an annual holiday campaign that launches mid-November. Join us at our offices on the evening of November 9 and be the first to see the campaign and get involved. This event is free and dinner is on us! REGISTER FOR FREE »
2. Join The Renewal. The best way to support the Sudanese people is to join The Renewal. This is an automatic monthly giving program that directly supports our empowering work in Sudan. It’s like your monthly subscription to a video, music, or internet cable service, but it supports others! WATCH THE TRAILER »
3. #GivingTuesday. One of our biggest giving days of the year is coming up on Tuesday, November 28! You can help by learning more about this special day and recruiting your friends and family on Facebook. LEARN MORE »
