Annual RH race raises money for Family Promise
RH race 1

In spite of the heat, 187 runners with supporters gathered at JF Gregory Park Friday evening for the 11th annual Red Hot Chili Pepper race benefiting Family Promise of the Coastal Empire. 

This year was the first time that this Georgia Game Changers-organized race took place in the evening with a post-race party featuring dinner, raffles, vendors, and an awards ceremony.  

“This event is such an important part of our nonprofit’s mission, with every participant directly supporting our goal of ending homelessness in the communities we serve," said  Family Promise Executive Director Katrina Bostick.

Family Promise of the Coastal Empire works with host congregations to serve families with children facing homelessness. The organization recognizes that poverty is a complex problem that requires a multifaceted response. The nonprofit, serving Bryan, Chatham and Effingham counties, respond by integrating educational outreach, effective policies, and the hands-on work of volunteers providing food, shelter, and support services.
