The Children’s Village at Christian City will be hosting their annual Pancake Breakfast and Griddle Gallop 5k run & 1 mile walk and roll on October 27th in Union City. Come out to enjoy pancakes and participate in the races! This is a fantastic and fun way to help the abandoned and abused children who live in the cottages at Christian City.

This beautiful 5k course takes place on the 500 acre Christian City campus. Race Entries are only $25 if you register before October 24th and $30 if you register on race day. Participants will receive a full pancake breakfast and race day t-shirt. Don’t miss out on these discounted rates by registering online today at or by calling 770-703-2636.

Running not your thing? You can still support The Children’s Village by coming out to the Pancake Breakfast! Tickets are only $5 and include pancakes, sausage, juice, and coffee. Or you can be a “Phantom Runner” and receive a T-shirt and pancake breakfast for only $15. As an added bonus, anyone who wears their race t-shirt to Graceland Thrift Shop on October 27th will receive half off their already low prices!!!

All proceeds from the Griddle Gallop 5k and Pancake Breakfast will benefit The Children’s Village, which has been caring for children in need for over 45 years. These boys and girls have suffered through abuse, neglect, abandonment, poverty, and unimaginable hardship. It is the passion of The Children’s Village to once again give children hope by providing a safe home, good nutrition, education, and the opportunity to be kids again. Over 1,000 children have called Christian City “home.”
