You are invited to the 2nd Annual Peace Run. This fun Run/Walk will help to raise money for the "Just For The Fun Of It Dance", a special community dance held twice a year for adults with disabilities and mental illness, and raise awareness about mental illness.
This is the 2nd annual Peace Run, a 5k Fun Run/Walk!! This is a non-competitive event that will begin at 9:00am on the left side of the Bayfront Stage. This year the Peace Run joins forces with the Bridge Fest - Harvest Fest. The Peace Run begins at the Bayfront Park, Stage then heads to the Canal Park/Lakewalk and then wraps back around to Bayfront just in time for the Farmer's Market to open!
As an added bonus, there will be an additional "Just 4 The Fun Of It" dance from 1:30-3:30pm and the public is invited to stay after the Peace Run! That will serve two purposes, says the committee, to get some of the adults with disabilites and mental illness to experience Bridge Fest-Harvest Fest and to have the community meet some of the people they are helping.
The Just For Fun Committee putting on the run hopes this event will not only raise money for the "Just 4 The Fun Of It" dances, but also help educate and raise awareness in the community about mental health.
Pre-Registration is $25.00 and Same day registration is $30.00
