With fall comes beautiful weather…weather that makes strolling through the parks or sprinting through the streets (not to be confused with flashing) so much more enjoyable. There are several opportunities coming up that allow you to do that and to raise money for local organizations too. Here’s some brief information about what’s in store.
The 2014 DeSoto Goes Pink 5K will be October 18th at Spross Park. You can check out their Facebook page or click on the link below for the registration form. Funds raised go to assist those who are battling breast cancer by providing free or low-cost mammograms, gas cards, help with utility bills, and other assistance, primarily to those who don’t qualify for other programs. And you guessed it, the money is used locally!
The 2014 Vineland 5K will be November 1st. The purpose of the race is to promote a healthy lifestyle while raising money for Angie’s Hope Foundation, which is a local scholarship program. You can contact Amanda at the school (636-586-1010) for more information or just get the registration form using the link below.
Other races abound too, but these are local. If you want something that will provide a little drive and change in scenery, you might check out a Turkey Trot (11/27/2014) or the Making Strides of St. Louis (10/25/2014).
