K-LOVE Fan Awards to Host First Annual RUN FOR LOVE 5K at Gaylord Opryland Hotel Set for May 31

For the first time, the K-LOVE Fan Awards will incorporate a RUN FOR LOVE 5K at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel on May 31 as a part of the K-LOVE Fan Awards Weekend. The 5K will benefit the Hands and Feet Project and the children of Haiti. Christian fans will have the opportunity to run alongside some of their favorite artists as they support the work of the Hands and Feet Project.

“The K-LOVE Fan Awards was a fantastic event last year,” said Mark Stuart, Executive Director and Co-Founder of the Hands and Feet Project. “This year the fan experience will be more exciting and more significant. K-LOVE Fan Awards and the Hands and Feet Project are teaming up to bring hope to Haiti's orphaned and abandoned children by putting on the first annual RUN FOR LOVE, a celebrity 5K Fun Run. Where else can you break a sweat with some of your favorite artists to bring hope to some kids in Haiti? It's all about love. What are you waiting for?”

Lacing up to participate in this year's 5K Fun Run is K-LOVE Fan Awards host Matthew West, Tenth Avenue North, KJ-52, Audio Adrenaline, Sidewalk Prophets, Group 1 Crew, Citizen Way, Finding Favour, Josh Wilson, Rhett Walker Band, City Harbor, Everfound, K-LOVE On Air DJs and more.

Each participant will receive a RUN FOR LOVE race tee and swag bag including music and merchandise. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for fans as they get to run or walk alongside some of their favorite artists on Saturday morning, the day before the K-LOVE Fan Awards.
