Event Information
Inspired by long-time FBA supporter and grandparent to two FBA graduates, Orville Rogers. The annual Rogers Run is an opportunity for you to participate in either a 5K or 1 Mile Fun Run benefiting the Orville and Esther Beth Rogers Scholarship Fund for FBA tuition assistance. A portion of the proceeds will go to the permanent Rogers Scholarship Fund and the remainder will go to benefit current FBA students.  Our next event is the morning of Saturday, October 10 at the SAC.
While others dreamed of coasting for the latter part of their lives, Orville Rogers, at the age of 50, started running.
Now, at age 97, with over 40,000 miles of track behind him, Orville holds 13 world records including the 4x200 meter relay,the 4x8 relay, the indoor 800-meter, and the indoor mile, as well as American records in the 1,500 meter and 3,000 meter races in his age-range. 

After a race, a freelance writer for New York Times magazine asked Orville what motivated him to continue running. He replied by quoting Hebrews 12:1-2:
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
The FBA family are witnesses to the life of faith lived by Orville and Esther Beth Rogers. To God be the glory!
