The Barefoot Benefit 5K Event
Sunday, October 23, 2011 from 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM (EDT)
The country's FIRST barefoot 5k race and 1 mile walk/run on grass.
Barefoot. There is not much that can be used to distinguish between rich and poor, educated and less educated, fortunate and unfortunate.
THE BAREFOOT EXPERIENCE SYMBOLIZES EQUALITY FOR ALL!
The expertly maintained grass at Lambert Acres golf course will serve as the landscape for this unique event; providing a safe comfortable surface for participants who wish to be barefoot.
Proceeds from the race will benefit the hundreds of forgotten elderly served at Samaritans Place Emergency Shelter in Knoxville, TN.
The goal of Barefoot Benefit is to bring our community together for a relaxed afternoon, an enjoyable run or walk in the grass, live music, local vendors, and knowing that all the while we are helping a noble cause that affects people right here in OUR local.
This event is great for an individual or a family fun day out!
