Stinky Feet: $5 5k for a Great Cause

Stinky Feet Athletics is the precisely the type of locally owned small business we need in our area. I am thankful the owners and employees feel a desire to give back to the community, and to do so in a way everyone benefits. They go above and beyond.  One of the ways they do so is by hosting a monthly $5 5K for a good cause.

It's not timed. No one is out there to win a trophy.  No one is out there to show you up.

It's just your friends, neighbors, coworkers, etc., getting together at 6:30 p.m. at Genghis Grill on the third Thursday of each month.  They pay $5 for a good cause, and then walk/run 3.1 miles up and down East Metro Parkway. It's fun. It's exercise. It's community at its finest, and its tonight!

From their website:

A passion of ours at Stinkyfeet Athletics is supporting “local” ministries doing KINGDOM work. One of the ways we do this is through our Monthly $5 5k.
Its simple, come and run with us and donate $5 to the charity of the month. ALL money collected goes to the ministry or organization.
Come out and join us to raise money for the family of Jenna.  She is a 5 yr old heart transplant recipient.  20% of your food bill at Genghis will go back to Jenna’s family as well.
