Run the Plank5K for Macomb
Run the Plank June 29, 2019
His philosophy was as three large churches each does good work for the community, but imagine the amazing good that could happen if they came together. Together each church pledged to give support of planners, and also that every dollar that was received after expenses were paid would go out to the community. No church would gain one dollar from this historic and ambitious venture.
This launched the 5k community effort. The dream was launched with an idea of gaining about 500 participants, and closing down Romeo Plank for the route. With lots of prayer and great cooperation from the Macomb Township Board, and County Sheriff dept, and Fire dept., 2012 became the inaugeral RTP 3 miles of Faith.
In 2013 RTP had over 1200 participants and raised over $40,000 for local charities in the community.
In 2014 RTP had over 1400 participants, and raised over $55,000 for local charities in the community. This officially also made RTP the largest 5k run walk in the state of Michigan.
In 2015 RTP had over 1600 participants and raised over $45,000 for local charities in the community.
In 2016 RTP completed its 5th year as a Run Walk for the community with over 1600 participants, RTP officially now has donated over $190,000 back to local charities in Macomb County.
