Thank YOU for a successful Rock the Run 5K 2024!

A Race For Hope

Join us for our 9th annual Rock the Run 5K- Pirates vs. Princess. All proceeds from this 5K will benefit The Hope Center at Hagerstown Rescue Mission. The Hope Center serves the Hagerstown, Maryland community by offering food assistance, men's emergency shelter, men's life recovery program, youth and children's programs, and more. Since 1955, we have done this to show our community the love of Jesus Christ.


This year, the funds raised from this fundraiser will go to converting our front porch to a four-season sanctuary. We open the porch for daytime use during weather extremes (cold and hot), but the porch itself needs improvement in climate control. So funds will be used to allow us to create a more temperate location to house people during weather extremes.

Our 5K has the fun theme of pirates vs. princess. This gives race participants the option of making the event a fun activity for your family, organization, or church group. So grab your eye patch and join us for a fun time!

Food Drive

At the Registration tent, we will have donation boxes available for anyone who brings non-perishable food for our pantry. Food donated will be used in food bags to be distributed to hungry families, and our meal ministry that serves a hot lunch and dinner to anyone in our community. 


Our food distribution and meal ministry is free to anyone experiencing hunger in our community. To learn more, go to
