Mission of the Caring People
The Caring People, founded in 1997 by JoDee Herschend, seeks to impact the lives of Single Moms with the love of Jesus. We train and equip Christian women in mentoring Single Moms in small groups known as CARE GROUPS throughout churches in the midwest and El Salvador. We continue to grow and expand our mission reaching more Single Moms each year. Run to the Lights is one of two primary fundraisers held each year to raise the necessary funds to sustain this mission. Your participation enables us to reach more Single Moms with the love of Christ, transforming their lives in a real and tangible and thereby producing stronger, healthier families in many ways. Stronger women equals healthier families and healthier communities. Thank you!

The run begins by the Gazebo after instructions, at Cave Road and is an out and back run to the outer parking lots of SDC, winding back in through the streets of Silver Dollar City. The run ends at the main Christmas tree by the Gazebo. Awards are given to the overall male/female finisher and top 3 runners among 9 age categories. In the event of rain, no refunds will be given.
