The Third Annual Fist Bump 5k will benefit Family Shelter Services, which provides transitional housing for those in need. More than just a 5k, the event will include a fun zone for the kiddos and food and drink! Yes, you can walk too!

For 35 years, Family Shelter Services (FSS) has provided emergency shelter and transitional housing support services to homeless individuals and families throughout the greater Piedmont region. Every day we are committed to breaking the cycle of homelessness and depend on the generosity of individuals, community groups and local businesses to maintain and improve upon the services we offer. Family Shelter Services is a charitable non-profit organization in accordance with section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code. It receives no Federal funding.  FSS supports about 400 individuals annually by housing individuals and families at our 52-bed emergency shelter in Warrenton, VA, which operates round the clock, and through our transitional housing program which includes 24 housing units.

Your registration and/or donation to this event will support the most vulnerable members in our own community!  For more information about Family Shelter Services, please contact Gerry Vent at or visit our website at
