The Wellsfest 5KRun/Walk and 1 mile Fun Run is part of the WellsFest Festival, which is held every year by volunteers from Wells Methodist Church and the wider community to support a local non-profit beneficiary that is chosen each year. In 2019, the organization is Extra Table, a fund-raising organization that provides food for many Mississippi food pantries and programs that provide food to those in need. (extratable.org)
