Reconciliation is at the forefront of Barefoot’s mission, and our 5K 4 MLK (run/walk) is a special event to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Through this event we hope to shine a spotlight on the need for both diversity and unity within the Church, honoring those who stood up for justice and civil rights in generations past as we continue to model and advocate for Gospel-centered reconciliation for the generations to come.
