Update: Peace Run Changes Day And Location, Register Online
The 2nd Annual Peace Run originally schedules to be part of the Bridge Fest – Harvest Fest, is now going to go back to the Lakewalk at Endion Beach, (Next to the new Endion Station) and the date has changed to October 3rd, at 6:30 pm. 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 a non-competitive 5k event is great for the whole family to make a day of it, and also raises money for the “Just For The Fun Of It” Dance.
One thing that won’t change is the “Just 4 The Fun Of It” dance from 1:30-3:30pm at Bridge and Harvest Fest. The Public is invited. 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
