LetsMove

Let's Move Macon 5K

Macon, 8:30 AM

This free event, organized by First Baptist Church in Macon, will be held at Central City Park and on the Ocmulgee Trail. From the race organizer:

This event was inspired by First Lady Michelle Obama’s initiative to fight childhood obesity. Our bodies are God’s temple. 1 Corinthians 6:19 reads, “…do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?” We at First Baptist are committed to taking care of the temple. Pastor James Goolsby invites you to walk or run with him to raise awareness about childhood obesity, and encourage people from all ages to be healthy and live a more active lifestyle. A free health and fitness expo will take place for race participants and members of the general public. Local health care and fitness professionals will be available to offer free health care screenings, free samples, and give demonstrations and showcase their services.
