Annual Red Hot Chili Pepper 5K to benefit Family Promise of Bryan County
Chili pepper run

Runners of all skill levels and ages are needed for the Canady’s Red Hot Chili Pepper 5K, slated for 7:30 a.m. Saturday, July 20. The seventh annual race, hosted by Georgia Game Changers, will benefit Family Promise of Bryan County.

Runners ready to brave the early morning heat will gather at Jalapeños in Richmond Hill, a fitting place to start the course, which routes participants through a local neighborhood, Richmond Place. After working up a good sweat, runners can cool down and enjoy a post-race party featuring refreshments, raffles with great prizes, vendors and an awards ceremony at Georgia Game Changers Health and Fitness Center, 8872 Ford Ave., Suite 207.

All proceeds from the 5K, sponsored by Canady's Heating, Air and Plumbing, will go to Family Promise of Bryan County to assist homeless children and their families.

 Registration is $25 until June 30, $30 until July 19, and will be $40 on the day of the race. To register, please visit THIS LINK.

Packet pickup will be from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Friday, July 19 at Georgia Game Changers.

“We’re ready to have a little fun in the sun at the Canady’s Red Hot Chili Pepper 5K. Having an early morning race will help us beat the heat, sneak in a little exercise and support Family Promise in the process,” said Family Promise of Bryan County Network Director Candice Fife. “We are sincerely grateful to Canady’s and our other corporate sponsors for their generous support. Every person who participates helps support our goal of eradicating homelessness in our community.”

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