What's better than driving all over town to look at Holiday Light Displays? Having a chance to put them all together along a 5K course that you get to run through. We have the entire Veteran's Memorial Park in Canton, so there's no traffic beeping and making you run faster. You can race through, do a leisurely jog, or walk the 5K course. We'll have chip timing, great race shirts, and awards for the Overalls, Masters, Grand Masters, Senior Masters, and the Top three in all the usual five year age groups.
Papa's Pantry has just celebrated it's 20th year and has expanded to become Encompass Ministries. Encompass Ministries utilizes a holistic approach helping individuals and families attain stability through food assistance and specific guided training to those who experience unexpected financial hardship, those who find themselves victims of domestic abuse, in addition recovery programs, and at risk youth.
