Join us this Memorial Day for a fun event for the entire family which supports two wonderful organizations in Lawrence who have a mission to serve those in a situation of homelessness--Family Promise Lawrence and the Lawrence Community Shelter.
The 3rd annual 5K Home Run is May 25th, 2015, in beautiful downtown Lawrence, Kansas. The race starts at South Park, 11th & Massachusetts St. at 8:00 am, rain or shine.
This is a fast, certified course. First time racers, joggers, walkers, strollers and dogs on leash with their owners are welcome as it will be a fun family event. Music, a short fun run and other activities for children will follow. There will also be a supply drive for Family Promise and the Lawrence Community Shelter. Here is a of Wish List items that would be welcome. Donations, cash or checks made out to Family Promise Lawrence can be brought to Sunday packet pick up or to the Supply Drive table Monday.
New this year---sign up four or more at a time online by May 22nd and save $5 each, so put together a team of friends or family and get some friendly competition going for a good cause.
