GE 5k Race Benifiting The Petit Family Foundation July 15th!

It's that time of Year again! One of the biggest Petit Family Foundation events ever, and one of the very first fundraisers
held to honor and raise money for this great non-profit organization.

So, whether you're a runner, a walker or just looking to participate in a wonderful charity event,  follow the link below for directions and details, and come on out Saturday July 15th for a great time and an important cause!

Along with the 5K running course which is the focal event, there are heaps of  other activities for both adults and children, including a walk-a thon a special race for kids, lots of great food and most importantly, a buzzing energy of community outreach, positivism and love:

All kinds of folks from every walk of life have come from every corner of the state to take part, and a good many out-of state participants   They share at least one common desire - hoping to make a positive difference in this world, and our community. In the words of Michaela Petit they are  aspiring to " Be The Change" 

ie * You must be the Change that you wish to see in this world" 

        Michaela Petit's Favorite quote upon her Facebook page.

* Proceeds from the event are used by the Petit Family Foundation to help victims of violent crime and those suffering from chronic illness. The Foundation honors the memory of Jennifer Hayley and Michaela Petit carrying forward the legacy of thier kindness, thier activism, and their faith.
