Running-5K - Individual Age group/open
May 25 (Monday)
in 29 days $30.00
Join us this Memorial Day for a fun event for the entire family which also supports Family Promise of Lawrence, an organization serving local families experiencing homelessness. This fast, flat course is perfect for everyone from hard-core runners to leisurely walkers. Strollers and dogs on a leash are welcome, too!
Start time is 8:30 a.m., rain or shine. If lightning is present, the run will be delayed in hopes of it passing through.
Don't forget to take in the music, bouncy houses, the Bubble Lady and other free children's activities during the event, too! Family Promise will also host a supply drive for ongoing needs. (Check out our Wish List of much-needed items.) Donations, cash or checks made out to Family Promise of Lawrence (5K on memo line) can be brought to Sunday packet pick-up or to the supply drive table Monday morning.
Get a team of friends or family together for some fun competition going for a good cause and save $5 per person! Contact Kristin at 307.250.4026 for a team discount code.
Can't run or want to help at other times? We need volunteers to help make this event the most successful yet! Help with packet stuffing, kids activities or cheer on runners as a course marshal. Contact Kristin to sign up at firstname.lastname@example.org.
