Residents in the master planned community of Providence and surrounding areas can help support the Mt. Juliet Help Center by participating in the inaugural Del Webb Providence HomeRun 5K race and 1-Mile fun walk on Saturday, Oct. 3 at 8:30 a.m.
The Del Webb Providence HomeRun 5K is presented by the Homebuilders Association of Middle Tennessee (HBAMT). It occurs within Providence a mixed use community that includes eight distinctive neighborhoods and more than 800,000 square feet of shopping, dining and entertainment options. It also features 52 acres of natural areas with paved and unpaved hiking and biking trails.
The race route takes place primarily within Lake Providence, a Del Webb community, along its nature trails and scenic lake. The race begins near the Providence shopping district, located off South Mt. Juliet Road and Providence Parkway.
A portion of the proceeds benefit the Mt. Juliet Help Center, which provides food and assistance to those in need. All event attendees and participants are encouraged to bring non-perishable canned food items which will also be donated to the Mt. Juliet Help Center.
“We are grateful for the continued support of Del Webb and the entire Providence community,” said Mary Bacon, president of the Mt. Juliet Help Center Board of Directors. “The need for services has increased and we could not partner with a better group of people to help meet the demand.”
The registration fee is $20 for those who pre-register, and $30 on race day. In addition to the 5K run and walk, a variety of games, healthy living exhibits, youth "dash" competitions, live music, face painting, prizes and other family-oriented activities will be available to all runners and event attendees.
