The 5K is in memory of Gerald Harley who passed away from cancer.


Hartley was a founding member of Crossover Ministry, and his dedication to the Lord influenced many lost souls to surrender their lives to Christ and to break the chains of addiction.


“Most of you remember what an impact Bro. Hartley had on this ministry and on so many people’s lives and especially mine,” said Crossover Director Todd Sasser. “His presence is missed everyday, but his spirit lives on.”
