3rd Annual Drumstick Dash

Thanksgiving Morning - November 28th, 2013 at 9:00am

Shuffle your feet, so other’s can eat!

Join Union Mission on Thanksgiving morning for a 5K run/walk starting at University of Charleston. This event is sure to get you in a thankful mood as you team up with Union Mission to feed the hungry. All proceeds will be used by the Mission to purchase food for Christmas baskets given out to over 20,000 families statewide.

This is a family event so, bring the kids and pets (as long as they are on a lead - the pets, not the kids). Registration Fees:

  • Children 10 and up - $20 ($30 day of race)
  • Children 10 and under that want to compete - $10
  • Children 10 and under that just want to participate are free

We are encouraging every participant to bring as many canned food items that they can. Gifts will be given out to the largest donation of canned food.
