Stinky Feet's Thursday Charity Runs


Considering how much they sponsor and do in our community to encourage an active lifestyle and general health, Stinky Feet is a huge asset for the Reservoir area.  One of the many programs they organize is their Thursday afternoon charity run.  Every Thursday at 6:30 p.m., anyone and everyone who wants to, can show up at Genghis Grill at the Dogwood Mall, pay $5, and run a 5K +/- as a group.  There are no medals for finishing 1st place, nor is there any pressure to run your hardest.  You run (or walk) at your own pace; you spend time with others in your community; and its all for a good cause.  Each week, the money generated from the run is donated to a worthy charity.  Last week, I believe it was The Mustard Seed.  Tomorrow, it's Ignite Sports Camp in Pulaski, MS.  There are no qualifications for participating in this charity jog, other than having $5 ready for a good cause.  


Ignite Sports Camp is for boys aged 13-18 and held at the beautiful TimberCreek Camp in Pulaski, MS.  

Young men from all walks of life attend the camp, but there is one common denominator between them all: a love for sports. While providing superior athletic instruction, Ignite Sports Camp also invests much into the most important aspect of a person’s life- a relationship with Jesus Christ. This teaching not only comes from the fantastic speakers that are at camp, but is also lived out by our instructors and counselors. One of the unique components of Ignite Sports Camp is that each of our instructors played their respective sports collegiately and some professionally.

Each camper chooses one of four sports to be instructed in and to hone their skills: football, baseball, basketball, and soccer.

I want to thank you for posting this! I have signed my son up for the Ignite camp for baseball this summer. If not for the Rez News, I would not have known about it. Many thanks for all you do.
