The Urban Purpose 5K and Kid's Mess Fest will raise funds for Urban Purpose. This ministry serves the homeless, poor, broken and needy in Birmingham, AL. The race is being hosted by Shades Mountain Baptist Church and will start and finish at the pavilion on the church property. The course will run through the beautiful rolling hills neighborhoods behind the church. The Kid's Mess Fest will take place on the field at the church. There will be water games, slip n slides and inflatables for kids. Be sure they wear swimsuits. It's sure to be messy and festive!
Prizes will be given to the male and female overall winners as well as for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in the following age group divisions for men and women:
14 and under, 15-19, 20 - 24, 25 - 29, 30 - 34, 35 - 39, 40 - 44, 45- 49, 50 - 54, 55- 60, 60 and up.
If you would like to further support Urban Purpose, bring a snack bag donation item on packet pickup or race day. Appropriate items include multi-packs of peanut butter crackers or cheese crackers, granola bars, juice boxes, individual apple sauce or fruit cups, peanuts or small bottles of water (all non-perishable). These are packed in ziploc bags and given out at the meal served on Sundays so that the homeless might have them during the week.
