Gather your FRIENDS, family and neighbors for some fun, running and food as you enjoy a scenic 1 mile, 5k or 5 miles run in the lovely Brunswick Forest community during the cooler temperatures of the Fall weather. When you run, you help us "GIVE" back to the students in our local schools (see more details below). As always our races hosted by the Leland Lady Runners are packed with Surprises and Prizes!!!!
You can run Friendsgiving as a stand alone race or as the 3rd and final race in the "RISE Up" race series. Either is fine. If you want the series swag, be sure to sign up for all 3 races in the series to get a discount and some super cool swag...a headwrap, knee high socks and finisher medal, in addition to your Friendsgiving race swag. If you missed the first 2 races, do not worry you can always complete them virtually.
Leland Lady Runners is a non-profit run group whose purpose is to connect ladies who live in the Leland area that love to run or want to start running. We offer FREE opportunities for ladies to connect in person or virtually. Last November we hosted the Hurricane Florence 5K/1 mile to benefit the flood victims in Brunswick County. This year we are hosting "Friendsgiving 5Miler/5K/1mile" as our annual fundraiser to benefit the students in our schools. There are 2 ways we hope to make an impact:
1) We will be collecting food items and donations for Mathew's Ministry, a non-profit organization that currently provides food for children at 12 schools in Brunswick County.
2) We will be giving money directly to each school or school program that creates a team. The larger the team, the more money raised for that school or school program. Be sure to create or join a school team to show your school spirit!!!
On race day we will be raffling off some very cool prizes. To be entered into the raffle, bring one or more of the food items listed below to be donated to Matthew's Ministry
