Girls Run the 901 are super exited about partnering with Fayette Cares and the
Cotton Pickin 5K. We are huge believers and supporters of giving back to our community and when we became aware of the Fayette Cares mission we couldn't be more exited about supporting their cause.
Fayette Cares is a non-profit organization that embraces the mission of empowering those in need in their community with "hope, independence, and lasting solutions." This comes from offering a food pantry, Hope’s Cottage which provides services that help homeless families transition from homelessness to independent living, self defense for battered women, and several other life changing services.
This selfless organization is fully funded by donations, sponsors and fund raisers. What's "new" in Fayette Cares news is their annual Cotton Pickin 5k and the Cotton Candy 1k Fun Run. The event takes place on September 14 in the midst of the Cotton Pickin Festival. Not only do you have a chance to run and support a great cause but there lots to do with the whole family! There will be inflatables, games, music and so much more. Unique cotton bale trophies are given out to the winners of the 5k. Lots of fun to be had for sure!
Us girls will be out not only to run but to help with the pre race warm up and to hold a question/answer session afterwards about all things running!
So, lace up your tennis shoes and join the Girls Run the 901 for a day full of fun, games, and pounding out a few miles for a great cause.
Registration is underway now, check it out here.
We will see you there!
