Description:

This is our 6th Year!!!

Join us this Memorial Day for a fun event for the entire family which supports Family Promise of Lawrence, an organization which has a mission to serve those in a situation of homelessness.

The 5K Home Run will be May 28, 2018, in beautiful downtown Lawrence, Kansas.  The race starts at South Park, 11th & Massachusetts St. at 8:30 am, rain or shine. If lightening 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, 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 ongoing needs.  Here is a  Wish List  of items that would be welcome. 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 save $5.  And back again this year---sign up four or more  by May 23th 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 helphere.
