Money raised from the event will be used to help with the club’s programs. This will allow area youth to take part in the programs, which many are not able to afford.

Frank Decker, Chief Professional Officer, comments on the Limestone 5K

Many local businesses help sponsor the event such as Agriculture Stone who provided the awards for the events. Refreshments were provided to the race participants to include watermelon, cookies, and drinks.

Community volunteers assumed roles such as helping with the registration process or helping to mann the various cooling stations throughout the course. Participants of all ages took part in the event to help accomplish the needs and goals of the Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence County.

Most of all, it was a fun event that provided good exercise to promote good health for many in our community.
