A great opportunity to run or walk in the cool fall weather, the Bee the Light 5K is the first annual race sponsored by The Shelby Foundation for Kindness Delivered. This exciting event on a paved trail will highlight the family-friendly environment of Southeastway Park which also includes bike trails, a playground, shelters, an education center, wooded areas, and a pond.
This race is held in honor of Shelby Kraft, who passed away in early 2022, and 100% of registration proceeds will be donated to the International Rett Syndrome Foundation. Rett Syndrome is an incurable neurologic disorder, primarily affecting girls and women, which can lead to significant disability. Shelby is also the namesake of Kindness Delivered, an organization that delivers kindness in Jesus' name throughout the community.
