This non-competitive 5K walk/run is organized in support of Bishop Trimble’s FIT challenge and in collaboration with the Wellness Ministry of the Iowa Conference.

Participants will be raising funds for the Imagine No Malaria campaign.


    Foot’n It for Relief will take place on Sunday, June 9 at 6:15 am with check-in starting at 6:00 am.

    The 5k walk/run will take place along the Principal River Walk.  Join us at the corner of Center St and the 2nd Street.  Look for the  “Foot’n it for Relief” banner at the entrance to the Pedestrian Bridge.

    All conference delegates, including lay and clergy, are encouraged to participate.

    Youth and children 14 years and younger must be accompanied by an adult.


    The registration fee is $15 for each participant.  REGISTER BELOW NOW!

    You will also be able to register at the event on Sunday morning.

    You can pay by mailing your fee ahead of time or the day of the event.

    Checks should be made payable to “Iowa Annual Conference” with memo line of “FIT Walk”.

    If you would like to pay ahead of time, you can do so by mailing your check to:

         Imagine No Malaria – Iowa Annual Conference, 2301 Rittenhouse St. Des Moines, IA 50321.


    We will not be including t-shirts with your registration cost this year, in order to raise as much money as possible for our mission project.

    We do still have a few Imagine No Malaria t-shirts left.  If you would like to purchase one, you have the option to do so before you finalize your registration.  The cost is $10/shirt and you can pick it up that day.


    The Golden Shoe Award will be given to the church raising the most funds.

    You can sign up for the race yourself, or donate on behalf of your church to support your lay delegate or pastor who might be participating. Indicate your church on the registration form.

    Churches may also hold their own walks to raise funds before the event.

    Challenge your congregation to get FIT and join the Bishop on June 7th.
