Do you have a pair of sneakers and a sense of humor? Well, you’re in luck because the SMFA Ambassadors are hosting a 5K Fun Run that promises to be a wild and wacky adventure! But it’s not just about the fun; it’s also about doing something fantastic for a cause close to our hearts.

Here are the juicy details:

Date: Saturday, December 2nd, 2023, at 8:00 am

Location: Wrightsville Beach Park (or your own chosen route for virtual runners)

Now, hold on to your shoelaces because this 5K run isn’t just for the Usain Bolts of the world. You can walk, run, or even participate virtually while enjoying your favorite Netflix series in your pajamas! We’ve got something for everyone:

Registration Fees:

Runners: $25/person (because we know you love the thrill of competition)

Walkers: $10/person (for those who prefer a leisurely stroll)

Teams: (5 people): $100 (bring your friends, and make it a quirky team adventure)

Virtual: $25/person (you can even run in your dreams, we won’t judge)

And hey, it’s not just about bragging rights! We’ve got some seriously funky rewards too:


1st, 2nd, 3rd place for the competitive souls

Medals for walkers (because they’re also champions)

But wait, there’s more! We’ve got giveaways that will make you jump for joy (or maybe just jump because you’re excited, we won’t judge):


Tee shirts (to show off your incredible fashion sense)

Water bottles (stay hydrated in style)

Sport bags (for all your sweaty workout gear)

Certificates (because sometimes you need a certificate to prove you had a blast)

Now, here’s the heartwarming part: We’re running, walking, and virtually participating to support “School Meals For All NC.” No child should go hungry in North Carolina, and every child in every public school in the state should have access to breakfast and lunch at school at no cost to their families. In North Carolina, 1 in 6 kids goes hungry every day. School Meals For All NC can help change that!

So, lace up those sneakers and join us for a day of laughter, fun, and making a difference. Whether you’re running like the wind or walking at a leisurely pace, every step counts. Come for the fun, stay for the cause, and leave with a heart full of warmth.

See you on December 2nd at Wrightsville Beach Park, ready to run, walk, or virtually participate for a belly-full of fun and a great cause!
