On Saturday, May 18th, the Columbus County Community Farmers Market will be your one-stop spot for a healthy lifestyle. Pick up your local fruits and vegetables and participate in the fourth annual Farmers Market Fun Run & Walk.
The event, which had 226 finishers last year, welcomes everyone from group walkers
to competitive runners to join together in a 3.1 mile run/walk. The run/walk will begin at 9 AM with a 1/2 mile kids fun run beginning at 8:45 AM. Registration is now open at www.fmrun.com. Entry fee is $5 without a t-shirt and $15 for entry with a t-shirt.
The event will also raise money for youth running programs such as Girls On The Run, Girls On Track and STRIDE, a running program geared towards boys in 3rd to 5th grade. Each of these programs teaches youth the value – both physical and mental – of staying active. GOTR and GOT teams from Evergreen Elementary and a GOT team from Nakina Middle will participate.
If you’d like to do more to assist, the event welcomes sponsors and volunteers. For more information, visit the Volunteers & Sponsors page at www.fmrun.com.
The Farmers Market is located at 132 Government Complex Rd. Whiteville, NC. Event details are available at www.fmrun.com.
