Event Description

Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season to join us for our Festive Four Mile run/walk to benefit Fostering Hope. You have 3 race options to choose from! The Festive Four (ish) Miler will complete 4 loops around Grand Park Lake at Market Common. The Kids Run will complete 800 meters around the lake. The Jurassic Jaunt will feature YOU dressed in your favorite costume for a 50 yard dash along the lake. All participants receive a finisher medal and the option of purchasing a hoodie (Four Miler only) and/or t-shirt. 

Fostering Hope was established in 2004 by citizens who saw a need to assist some of the most vulnerable children in our community, the children residing in our local foster care system. Our purpose at Fostering Hope is to help make these children's lives a little bit easier by making sure they have basic necessities such as clothing, shoes, and hygiene items.  We also try to lift their spirits and let them know the community cares by providing toys, books, school supplies, homemade quilts, and more. Join us and make a difference in the life of a child!
