We are excited to announce the 14th Annual Fountain 5K Run/Walk for the Terrell community. The event will be held Saturday, April 22, 2023. The 3.2-mile scenic neighborhood route will showcase the heritage and charm of our historic city as participants pass historic homes built at the turn of the century. Whether you run or walk, we hope that you will make plans to join us! We will have the event rain or shine.
The Fountain 5K was exclusively designed to benefit the Volunteer Services Council of Terrell State Hospital. Since 1952, the Volunteer Services Council has worked tirelessly to obtain goods, services, and monetary donations and provide personal attention for the benefit of the hospital’s patients—above and beyond the care and treatment provided by Terrell State Hospital. The continuation of this great work is largely dependent on friends like you. Your support of the Fountain 5K will allow the Volunteer Services Council to continue to make great things happen.
