Coleman’s Camo 5K 2014 Run had 670 registered runners, with over 520 actually running/walking the course. The participants created a sea of camo, which overflowed the Mitchells’ heart. Additionally, a memorial was placed at Coleman’s high school, NorthWest Cabarrus High School. The memorial, which was completed before the run, is dedicated to Coleman and all other students who enter into eternity in their high school years. The band OBB came up from Atlanta and performed at the end of the 5K race.
— $39,000 was able to build a home in Coleman’s honor at Watoto. David Cheek will be an ambassador from North Carolina to participate in part of the building process in March 2015. Prayerfully, Coleman’s house will be completed by the date of the 2015 5K race.
— $2,000 was given as a scholarship to a student at NorthWest Cabarrus High School.
— $2,000 was given as a scholarship to a student at The King’s Academy.
The Mitchells are so grateful for the generous hearts that made the continuing of Coleman’s legacy possible. With funds raised from the 2015 run they hope to either build a student dormitory at Watoto in Uganda or to build a playground near the house that is being built in Coleman’s honor. The Mitchells are forever grateful.
Please tell your friends and neighbors to come out and run in Coleman’s Camo 5K Run 2015.
