NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 1, 2018—Global Hunger Relief partners announced today details related to the second GHR Run in Dallas, scheduled to take place June 13 in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Dr. Jim Richards, executive director of the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention and 2017 race participant, said, "As we welcome our Southern Baptist family to the great state of Texas for the annual meeting, the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention is looking forward to supporting the 2018 Global Hunger Relief Run."

The 2018 GHR Run will include a 5-kilometer run and one-mile Fun Run. Winners will be recognized in a variety of categories later that day. To be notified when online registration for the 2018 GHR Run is available, visit

Last year, 200 runners and volunteers participated in the GHR Run in Phoenix, raising more than  $5,000 to meet hunger needs around the world. All funds raised through participant fees will go directly to GHR in 2018, as well.

“Global Hunger Relief funds are in many ways the lifeline for Southern Baptist hunger projects around the world,” said Jeff Palmer, CEO of Baptist Global Response and 2017 race participant. “Through our mission agencies, churches and local Baptist partners, we already have a ready reserve of implementing partners to help respond to hunger needs when and wherever they occur.”

GHR national partners include Baptist Global Response, the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, the Executive Committee of the Southern Baptist Convention,  International Mission Board, LifeWay Christian Resources, North American Mission Board and Woman’s Missionary Union.
