Upcoming run to raise funds for worthy local organization

July 28, 2017 by  

The 3rd annual Run for Love run and walk is taking place next month in Peachtree City, and is a fundraising event for the Loves Foundation, Inc.

The event consists of a 5K run and a one-mile walk, both of which will begin at the same time.

The field will be divided into age categories such as 12-14, 30-39, and 70 and over, and awards will be handed out. Participants can pick up their packets the day before the race at the Pavilion in McIntosh Park, or at 7:00 AM on the day of the race. The run and the walk will begin at 8:30 AM and awards will be given out at 9:30 AM.

Sponsorships are available from $100 up to $1,000.

The Loves Foundation, Inc. is an organization the serves bereaved parents who have lost an infant. The organization will make the funeral arrangements and provide financial help.

Peachtree City printing companies often provide the bibs and pledge forms that tend to be needed for marathon events. They can also supply the T-shirts that participants will receive.

The Run for Love will be held at the McIntosh Trail Complex on August 26 beginning at 8:30 am. Fees are $25 until tomorrow, July 31, and $30 after. For the most current information, contact Jennifer Speed at 404-345-3878.
