What Are You Doing on Labor Day?

What are you doing next Monday on Labor Day? The Carying Place in Cary, NC, is looking for 700 runners to go 3,000 miles. The race is called The Carying Place Labor Day Race for Home and offers both a 5K and 10K option. They also have a kids fun run. You ask, "What is the Caring Place?" It's a service that provides short-term housing and support services to homeless, working families with children. They also teach budgeting and life skills classes to help struggling families stay afloat in these uncertain times. 


To date they have worked with over 400 families. Here's just one of the many families that have been helped through this service. 


You can read more here. Please consider joining me on Monday for this worthy fundraiser. Yes, I am asking you to be active on Labor Day. Go ahead, chastise me. Sue me. The cause is worth it. A small, kind gesture can go a long way. 

Registration takes place here. The location is the Koka Booth Amphitheater in Cary. The course circles beautiful Symphony Lake.

This will be my first running of this race. I've signed up for the 10K.
