Project Memories Fall 5K

Sun October 30, 2022 Directions RaceJoy Ready



Join Project Memories, October 30th at 10AM for our first annual Fall 5k at Highbanks Metro Park. Bring the whole family to enjoy the festivities: run/walk the 5k, grab a snack at the food truck, enter the costume contest, and more!

All 5K participants will receive a Race Tee and a Medal!

Project Memories is a Central Ohio Non Profit, created to help provide local families in need with the opportunity to create memories that will last a lifetime. We raise money year round to provide these families with Back to School Supplies, Thanksgiving Dinner, Christmas Dinner and new, customized, wrapped gifts for each child. Last year we were able to provide Thanksgiving meals to 46 families, Christmas dinner to 60 families, and over 885 gifts wrapped for 177 children!

All proceeds from this event will be used to provide Christmas dinner and gifts to local families in need this year.
