Greater Project Hosts Sonder & Friends Oktoberfest 5K, Benefiting Vulnerable Children Locally and Globally
[Loveland, OH] – For the past 5 years, Greater Project has provided support and leadership to local communities and international partners, providing holistic, family-style, community-based care to the most vulnerable children. This year, Greater Project will host the Sonder & Friends Oktoberfest 5K event, benefiting the children they serve near and far. The event will be held at Sonder Brewing, 8584 Duke Blvd, Mason, OH 45040, on Saturday, September 25, 2021. After a year into the Covid-19 pandemic, Greater Project is excited to host the event, as many children have been directly impacted by the pandemic--physically, emotionally, and emotionally.
The global socioeconomic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic pushed up to 142 million more children into monetary-poor households at the end of 2020. In the U.S. alone, child poverty increased by an average of 1.8 percentage points—from 15.7 percent in 2019 to 17.5 percent in 2020. This translates to roughly 12.5 million children living in poverty in 2020, or 1.2 million more than in 2019.
Greater Project’s mission is to create generational change by connecting people with opportunities to invest in the lives of these orphaned and vulnerable children. The Sonder & Friends Oktoberfest 5K is a collaborative effort between Greater Project and Sonder Brewing. The event was established to connect with others in the Greater Cincinnati community in order to directly benefit children globally. The 5K has hosted up to 500 participants in recent years.
Join the Sonder & Friends Oktoberfest 5K on September 25th at Sonder Brewing, then stay for the after-party! German beers, festive food, Bier Relay Race, kids activities, and live music will be available. Awards for overall male and female, age, and best individual and team Oktoberfest costumes.
