We are proud to announce that proceeds from this event will support Feeding America and St. Jude Children's Hospital!
Feeding America - Hunger can affect people from all walks of life. Millions of people in America are just one job loss, missed paycheck, or medical emergency away from hunger. But hunger doesn't affect everyone equally - some groups face like children, seniors, and Black, Indigenous, and other people of color face hunger at much higher rates. Hunger also most often affects our neighbors who live in poverty. Please consider make a donation to help fight hunger. For more information click here!
St. Jude Children's Hospital - The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay. For more information click here!
Race Course: The Race Starts and Finishes at the Winery and is a scenic 2 lap course tour of the winery! If you can not do 2 laps, please inform the timing team. The route is a mix of grass and paved and has several turns to run. This is not the optimal course for a PR, but it is a great option if you're looking for the most fun you've had at a 5k!
