Join us this Memorial Day for our 6th annual fun, family-friendly event to support Family Promise of Lawrence, an organization serving those in a situation of homelessness.

The race starts at South Park, 11th & Massachusetts St. at 8:30 a..m, rain or shine. If lightning is present ,the run will be delayed in hopes of it passing through. FYI: Metered parking is free on holidays.

This is a fast, certified course. First-time racers, runners, walkers, strollers, and dogs on leash with their owners are welcome.. Music, a short fun run and other activities for children will follow. There will also be a supply drive for ongoing needs. Here is a  Wish List  of items that would be appreciated. Donations, cash or checks made out to Family Promise Lawrence (5K on memo line) can be brought to Sunday packet pick up or to the Supply Drive table Monday.

Register by May 1 and pay the early bird rate of $25 (save $5). Back again this year: Sign up four or more participants by May 23 and save $5 each, so put together a team of friends or family and get some friendly competition going for a good cause! Go here for how to set up a team.

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. Sign up to help here.
