Race for Reconciliation

The Race For Reconciliation at Tower Grove Park took off on Saturday, September 30.  This was the second annual race sponsored by St. Louis Reconciliation Network (STLRN), RECON Community Partner.  The Mission of STLRN is “to heal the broken race relations of the St. Louis region by harnessing the potential collective power of its diverse faith communities.”  Incarnate Word Foundation was proud to help sponsor the race and make it an “official” RECON event.  In addition to the 5K runners, a hearty group of one-mile walkers participated. Congratulations to the top male finisher, Chris Noda (17:48), and the top female finisher, Kellie Julius (22:01).  A great time was shared by all and RECON found many new friends who share our commitment to bringing people together in mutual understanding.
