All proceeds from Following The Star 5K go to support Southern Baptist Missionaries through the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. Currently 4800 missionaries are serving all over the world. This offering is their sole means of support, allowing them to focus fully on their work and not fundraising. Their work ranges from agriculture to medicine, but they all have the goal to share Jesus’ love through meeting the physical, emotional and spiritual needs to the local people they work with.
