It is that time of the year again! Just Say Something is starting off the month of October with our 5th annual Red Ribbon 5K.
Join us on Saturday, October 2, 2021 for the Red Ribbon 5K at Sugar Creek. Registration begins at 7:00AM while the race starts at 8:00AM. Winners will be notified during the week after the race.
The 5K will start at Sugar Creek Club House #3, located at 119 Stonecrest Road, Greer, SC 29650. No parking will be allowed at the Sugar Creek Club House #3. Participants must park at Airport Baptist Church at 776 South Batesville Rd. No parking is allowed on Devenger Road.
All proceeds will be used to help youth, parents, and the community have open, honest, and ongoing conversations about substance use/abuse and to expand the Youth Impact Sports program by helping to pay for healthy food, uniforms, and equipment.
Our goal is to raise $15,000.00 to support our Youth Impact Sports and Parenting Enrichment Programs. During this hard and uncertain time, there is an increased need for support for our families and youth in many of our hard-to-reach communities. Join us and relieve some stress while helping to support many others with the stress they are experiencing.
