The Legacy Challenge 5K. Registration now open!

The 2017 Legacy Challenge 5K is a run/walk (not a timed event) at our State Capitol on Saturday, June 17th. 2017.

This event is one of the few venues in our region to honor men who are doing a great job fathering, in the midst of extreme fatherlessness. Over 31.6 million youth in our country are growing up fatherless and in excess of 200,000 in our region.

Families and community leaders will honor men that are doing a great job of fathering their children. Men will be encouraged to remember, the life you live will be the legacy you leave.

Selected letters from children around our region, about what they love most about their dads, will be read to their dads and awards presented. This will be followed by a special Legacy Challenge Ceremony.

Proceeds will benefit the urban fatherless youth in our inner cities.

Packet Pick-Up

Run day packet pick up and registration begins at 6:45am at the west steps of the State Capitol at 10th and Capitol Mall.
