Summer is winding down and we have the perfect send off for it. The Friend Foundation is hosting their very first UpStander 5k on August 5th and we’re proud to say we’re one of the sponsors! For those of you who don’t know, August 5th is International Friendship Day. This goes hand-in-hand with what the Friend Foundation stands for.
Committed to putting a stop to bullying, the Friend Foundation has pro-actively garnered community support for kids who have experienced bullying at the hands of their peers. Not only does the Friend Foundation gather around them and support them, they encourage those who are bystanders to the offense to become UpStanders for those around them.
The UpStander 5k will be held at Crockett Park in Brentwood, TN and all registration donations will go to supporting bully-free school environments. This event is open to everyone, even those who are planning to walk or have strollers. Registration opens at 7:00am, line-ups will start at 8:30am, and prizes will be awarded after the race concludes. There will be a packet pick-up at our Cool Springs location on August 4th for anyone who wants more information about the 5k and the Friend Foundation!
Grab your friends and join us on August 5th for a fun-filled day geared toward supporting an awesome cause! Hope to see you there.
