Bethlehem United Methodist Church Grassland Gallop October 29th

Bethlehem United Methodist Church will host the Grassland Gallop on October 29th at Grassland Middle School. The fun begins at 8:00 a.m. This year’s event will include face painting and a DJ to entertain spectators and participants. An all-ages costume contest will also be held, and prizes will be awarded to the winner of each age group. Guests can also enjoy coffee, hot chocolate and snacks.

Children and youth can participate in one of three races. The 6K is for children 12 and younger. Participants must be accompanied by a parent. The route will begin at Grassland Middle School, travel behind the school and through Grassland Estates before returning to the school. The 2K Nature Walk and 1K Kid’s Fun Run will take place on the nature trail. Prizes will be awarded to the first male and female in each age group to finish. The registration fee for each of the races is $25.00, which covers chip timing at the race, a race t-shirt and goodie bag.

The event is being held to benefit Love on Wheels, an organization which assists children in foster care. They will be sponsoring an underwear drive the day of the race and ask that participants bring a package of children’s underwear or socks to donate. All sizes are needed.
