Peace family, there are multiple events this Saturday, all for great causes! We spoke with several organizer, and are excited to share with you about the Transitions and Disability Resources Fair, the Stampede for Need, and the Millican Ultramarathon.
Eric Roberts says the Transitions and Disability Resources Fair will be 9am to 1pm at the Brazos Center, and admission is free. Whether someone was born with disabilities or recently acquired them, there will be helpful tools for everyone. Resources, organizations, and agencies that help in a variety of ways will be available. Roberts says their goal is to help you learn to be more independent in the community, to work and live successfully, and there will be more than 50 exhibitors, and presentations.
Meanwhile, Nina Rodgers says Stampede For Need is a 5K, and all proceeds will benefit the St. Vincent De Paul Society, which ministers to the poor and homeless in the Bryan College Station area. The race begins at 9am (with registration at 8am). She says you can run, walk, or even dance across the finish line. Fore more details, or to register, go to www.aggiecatholic.org/stampedeforneed
If you’d like something a little more adventurous, Dan McClain says the Millican Ultramarathon offers 10K, 25K and 50K options. Registration lasts through midnight on Friday. He says it will take place at Millican Reserve, and the proceeds benefit Mercy Project, an organization which frees child slaves in Ghana. The time limit is eight hours. He says it’s a true trail race with single track roads, dirt roads, and jumping over creeks. For more details and to register, go to www.bcsultra.com
