Become a Nursing Home Pen Pal


The Koinonia Foundation invites the public to help neighbors in crisis by participating in its new fundraiser--the virtual Pace for Grace 5K Race, March 20-21, 2021.

Runners and walkers of all ages can register online for the race at, download the mobile race app, then complete 3.1 miles on their own route and pace anytime on Saturday, March 20, 12 a.m. until Sunday, March 21, 2021, 4 p.m.

The race app will track each person’s run/walk and display their route on a map along with time, distance and pace. It notifies participants when they’ve completed 3.1 miles and prompts them to upload their time onto the online results page, print a finisher’s certificate and add a selfie to appear next to their results.

The race registration fee is $30, with an option to purchase a commemorative race t-shirt for $20. T-shirts will be distributed during a Drive-by Shirt Pickup in the parking lot of the Edward Jones office of Koinonia Board President Becky Parsons, 941 Gateway Commons Circle, Suite 113, Wake Forest. Watch the website and Facebook page for details on T-shirt pickup date and time.

Holden McLemore, Koinonia Foundation Board Member and Race Coordinator, said all proceeds from the family-friendly race will benefit neighbors in crisis from Wake Forest, Rolesville and Youngsville.

A Facebook Live post-race celebration at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 21, 2021, will highlight race participants, sponsors and donors.
