Pick A Place: Running for the Babies

October ushers in the “good” season for 5Ks, 10Ks, and all manner of marathons and triathlons.  That cooler weather makes us want to get out our running shoes!  We have a bunch of great ones in our area to choose from.  Here’s one of those that benefits Mothers’ Milk Bank of Mississippi - a 501c3 non-profit milk bank that supplies donor milk to Mississippi’s NICUs.  This super fun 5K starts from 2001 Airport Road parking lot but the kids activities are what you can stay for!  Those start at 10am and include Dorian the Magician, various vendors and live music.  Plus, Snow Critters and Hog Heaven food truck will be on-site for lunch with to-go boxes available!  There will be prizes for the top three males and females in each age category, plus a $100 VISA gift card for runner who collects the most money in pledges.  It’s going to be a fun time!
