It is with that same energy that plans are in motion for the 3rd Annual Francie’s Family 5K Run/Walk, scheduled for Saturday, March 17, 2012—a day that promises to get heart’s pumping and spirit’s soaring. Our community is a family, and we hope for this event to continue to be a unifying and loving way to positively remember and honor our lost family members. The primary goal of Francie's Family 5K is not to raise money; it is to come together as a community and remember Francie and her family, as well as other loved ones lost to tragedy. Online registration begins January 15, 2012. Opening announcements start at 8:30 at the park, the race begins at 9 a.m., the kids' fun run takes off at 10 a.m. and the post race party begins at 10:30 a.m.
