_ The 2021 Good Samaritan 5K Run:

15th Annual Good Samaritan Cross Training 5K

Date and Time: Saturday October. 9th, 2021, 8:00 AM

Get excited as our 15th Annual Ministry Fundraiser offers Greenville their 7th Annual Cross Training 5K Race!!  Hope of Glory and CrossFit Greenville are proud to continue the challenging cross training 5K to benefit families throughout Pitt County. Please join us as we blend our Annual 5K race with Cross Training exercises into a beautiful new course beginning at Reade Circle, towards the Town Common and back up 5th Street, running by East Carolina University.

GO Pirates!

Our race offers options for runners to run a regular 5K, for families to walk a 5K together, or those who like to step up their fitness level can participate in the 6 cross training stations guided by coaches from CrossFit Greenville.  These stations are placed throughout the 5K run and require a completion of specific exercises with multiple repetitions. Any weight exercises will be adjusted based on fitness level and weight requirements. Heats will be used to separate beginner, intermediate, and advance cross training levels.

Proceeds will help Hope of Glory Ministries in their mission to relieve burdens, empower families, and proclaim Christ throughout our community! 



Hope of Glory Ministries was founded in 2001 as a 501 (c)(3) Christ‐centered community outreach ministry. A large focus of our ministry is helping those in Pitt County who live at or beneath the level of poverty. It is estimated that 21.7% of Pitt County residents live below the poverty level ($25,715 for household of 4). Based on US Census 2018 estimates, this translates into about 39,000 people. Our Community Food Co-op Program is moving families towards financial stability by providing healthy fresh and non-perishable foods twice a month. With an estimated $270 savings each month, families are paired with mentors and set goals to redistribute the saved money towards debts, an emergency fund or savings account.

Our 2020 Impact Report:

• Average household income of our Community Co-op families is $24,000.

• In 2020, The Community Co-op Program served 17 families and relieved $44,821 in grocery savings.

• 760 mentor/education hours attended by families

• $10,365 invested by families into program

• $40,070 placed into savings accounts by families
