The Hands & Feet Project is partnering with the Tim Tebow Foundation to put on a "Run For Joy" 5K celebrity fun run in Orlando, Fla. on Sept. 6. The aim of the event is to raise money for the children of Haiti.
The Hands & Feet Project was created by Christian rock band Audio Adrenaline in the early 2000s after the overwhelming response to their song "Hands & Feet," which was based off of their own experiences doing missionary work.
Some of the confirmed guests for the run so far are Colton Dixon, For King And Country, and KJ-52 with more being announced soon.
Registration for the race cost $75, and every participant will receive an artist "swag bag," t-shirt, race day breakfast, and a fundraising page to raise awareness for the cause.
"I'm a bit of a couch potato, but 'Run For Joy' has me lacing up my Nikes," Mark Stuart, co-founder and former lead singer of Audio Adrenaline said in a press release. "We are humbled and excited to partner with the Tim Tebow Foundation, Audio A, KJ-52, Colton Dixon and For King and Country to raise awareness and funds for the orphaned and abandoned children of Haiti. My family can't wait to participate in the celebrity race, the concerts at Night of Joy and Rock the Universe, and we definitely will be making a visit to see Mickey. It doesn't get much better than having fun while making a difference in the lives of these amazing children."
The Hands & Feet Project oversees two children's villages in Cyvadier/Jacmel and Grand Goave, Haiti, where they care for 100 orphans and abandonded Haitian children.
The race takes place Friday Sept. 6 at Disney World in Orlando, Fla. The race begins at 7:30 a.m.
