The Spooktacular 5K and 1-mile Trick-or-Treat Fun Run is organized by the Anderson County Special Needs Foundation and supports our special citizens who live independently or in assisted living residences throughout Anderson County. Some of our special needs citizens are without family or loved ones to provide for them financially so our fundraising efforts are used to help with clothing, eating out, social dances, trips, and events that involve them in the mainstream of society. Our Special Citizens always participate in the fundraiser and will be volunteering in multiple roles throughout the day. This is a family event with costumes, trick-or-treat 1 mile, and FUN. We DO NOT give any finishing prizes, as ALL our proceeds from this event go directly to support the Anderson Special Needs Foundation. However, all 5K or 1-mile finishers will be entered to win prizes after the race. This is a FUN EVENT, and we hope you will be able to join us.
