Our Work

Ferguson Twilight Run 5K / 10K & Fun Run

This event targets the novice runner and walker to the experienced runner to those that have only hoped to complete such an event. Held in May, the Ferguson Twilight 5K began in 2010 with a goal to register 300 persons. Over 900 registered that first year. Participants included young and old, novice runners to experienced runners.

YMCA-checkIn the past, we have made donations to the local YMCA for youth scholarships and we also made a donation to a local tornado relief fund. These YMCA donations help youth take part in healthy and active activities free of charge. This tornado relief fund distributed grants to local families that were affected by the storm – giving them the peace of mind to help cover a small portion of the expenses to rebuild their homes and get back to living a healthy and active life.
