Franklin FUMC Run for Missions
Franklin First UMC
Sun, Mar 29 3:00 pm


This is the FIFTH year of the revived Franklin FUMC Run for Missions. If you've been around Franklin for decades, you may remember our church's run back in the 1990s. Since then our church has moved to its new location at Mack Hatcher and Franklin Road with enough land for an entire 5K race on the church property. Come ready for a fun afternoon of running or walking around our more than 100 acres, music by the Grateful Bluegrass Band, and homemade baked goods for prizes! A half-mile of the course is on a grass horse track, so expect a little grass on your running shoes.  The missions committee at FUMC helps determine where the proceeds of the race will go according to current needs each year. This year we will split the money we raise between two local missions, Daughters of the King (a local nonprofit founded in 2014 by a group of Franklin women to serve needs they saw in the Natchez Street community of Franklin including delivering vegetables from FFUMC's Giving Garden and providing free lunch/dinner programs during the summer, fall and winter months with the goal of combatting hunger) and N.O.O.K. (A local non-profit founded in 2017 to help FSSD and Wm County school staff eliminate barriers to education for kids in crisis by focusing on needs of basic clothing and hygiene essentials children as well as food and gas money for the family so children can focus on achieving success in the classroom.). And then a quarter of the proceeds will go to help fund the FUMC Youth summer mission trips as well for all the help they give us on race day.
