About This Activity

Dayspring Christian Academy's K4B class, taught by Mrs. Kristen, is raising money for their class service project. Their service project is to support our service men and women. They started out the year by sending care packages to troops deployed in Africa. Right after Thanksgiving, they went to thank the local police and fire departments. They have since moved on to phase three, which is to support the wounded veterans. They have chosen to donate all of the proceed's from the race to the Warrior Beach Retreat. Which is a Christian-based retreat for woudned veterans and their caregivers in Panama City Beach, Florida. It is such a wonderful cause, and the kids are so excited to be helping with something so big! Let's all join together to help show these warriors how grateful we are for their sacrifice!

The Salute the Wounded 5K Fun Run Challenge is going to be just that: a challenge! We will have a minimum of 8 obstacles set up on our 5K route. The route will be on many different types of terrain, anything from dirt to concrete. There is also a large possibility you will get dirty. This will be a fun yet challenging event. You won't want to miss it! There will be a 1 mile obstacle challenge as well for all ages. Anyone, 6 years old or younger will only be charged $15.00 to participate.
