The run is a 5-k fundraiser that goes to aid The Boys and Girls Club of East Mississippi’s various programs.

Organizers say they’ve surpassed the 18-thousand dollars raised last year by earning 20-thousand dollars this year.

“We get a lot of sponsorship's, not everyone comes out and participates in the race although we would love for them to, but they do donate and it’s not just about the donations it’s about the community involvement, commodity and just bringing the community together, so that’s why a lot of people say I just want to donate , but we actually want your money, but we want you here too” Said Dr. Felecia Brown race director.

There Were 250 Participants in this year’s race.
