Remembering Grace at Run with Grace 5K Event
Run with Grace 5K is on Saturday, January 26th, and is sponsored by The Human Bean of Jackson County.
This annual community event is held to honor the life of 15 year old Grace Holt. All funds raised from sponsors and registration go toward a scholarship fund for students in fifth grade through high school to attend camps, clubs, or activities of their choice. The whole idea is to help kids that are in financial need. The event is also to honor Grace’s legacy and to remember her life. Grace’s mom Susan Holt says, “When Grace died I knew I wanted to do something to honor her memory; something good and positive.” The slogan for the event is “Kindness Matters” and attendees are encouraged to paint messages of hope on rocks.
Last year there was a large show of support from the community for the event and they are expecting it to grown again this year, it’s 3rd year. The Human Bean will donate coffee and hot chocolate to be served to the runners and walkers before and after the event.
