Support the Forgotten Louisville with the Fresh Start 5K January 1
Want to begin the new year on the right foot? You can do that literally at the Forgotten Louisville Fresh Start 5K. Put on your running or walking shoes, and get out in the fresh air to start burning off some calories.
Fresh Start 5K
Bring new and gently used hats, gloves, coats, scarves and blankets to for the Forgotten Louisville. Any items you donate will be given to those in need. Participate in this 5K by walking or running. And if you don’t feel like doing either, you can always show up here to provide moral support.
There is a hot chocolate bar, so it’s pretty tempting to just hang out on the sidelines! You’ll also get the chance to participate in drawings to win prizes. Take a photo in the photo booth while you’re here, too. All the excitement begins at 10 am sharp on New Year’s Day, rain or shine.
And when the 5K is over, head to Molly Malone’s with the rest of the group for a post-5K buffet. This just might be the perfect way to celebrate New Year’s. Go to 117 Breckenridge Lane to participate. You’ll be just outside of Crescent Hill, a neighborhood that’s absolutely perfect for walking.
