A family event for a family day! Thanksgiving is such a wonderful family time! And a time of gratitude for all we have!
Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 24 @ 8:30 am at the Elkhart Health & Aquatics Center, 200 East Jackson, Elkhart IN.
10K starts first at 8:30 am, 5K at 8:35 am with the Mile Walk @ 8: 38 am following as soon as the 5K people are through the gates.
There are hundreds of people (men, women and children) who rely on the Faith Mission homeless shelter for accommodations, clothing, training and food. And this race is the biggest fundraiser for the Mission! Please know that your participation makes a huge difference!
Come join us in the morning for some fresh air and movement, before your festivities! This is NOT intended to take up your entire morning- just come out- be with the community - move a bit, work up an appetite and then get back to your plans!
