Run for Their Lives Thanksgiving 5k

Our Story

I'm Georgia from knowhowmom.com and @knowhowmomtips on Instagram.  Like all of you, I want to make the world a better place.  I have a special place in my heart for refugees.  

Having weathered a divorce, I remember feeling like a woman and mom without a country...like my hopes and dreams had gone up in ashes.  And I relate in a small way to the plight of so many people who are having to start from scratch and build a new life for themselves and their families.  The pain I felt can't even compare to what they are experiencing.

So here's my plan.  We used to run our community 5k every year and then we started inviting our kids. As our famliy grew, our wallets were starting to hurt with the fees they were charging, so we started our own neighborhood 5k.  It's very low key (you can walk, run, skip, hop, crawl, or come just to hang out) and a great way to start Thanksgiving.  This year we want to add to the GIVING part and have friends and neighbors join us in giving what they can to help another family who is starting over. Give as little or as much as you want.
