The Book It 5K is a great place to be on September 21!  It’s where we celebrate a good run on a beautiful morning, benefiting two great Memphis organizations making a difference in the lives of children and youth.
 
What:  A morning of running or walking in the Memphis sunshine.
 
Who:  The 5K (3.1 mile) run/walk is for all ages, with awards for each age group, stroller and overall winners.  All participants get race t-shirts.   
 
When:  Saturday, September 21 at 9:00 a.m.  At the finish line – food, music, fellowship and door prizes – plus balloon animals and face painting for the kids.
 
Where:  The race begins and ends at Church of the Holy Communion.
 
How:  Register to run or walk by signing up at the church or through our race website Bookit5k.racesonline.com – and we’re on Facebook too, at facebook.com/bookit5k.   Fees are $20 for the 5K.  And if you won’t be in town on race day, you can sign up as a Spirit Runner. 
 
Why:  The best part is that the run raises money for two organizations that are changing children’s lives for the better:  Emmanuel Center in downtown Memphis, and Books from Birth.  You can also sponsor a child from the Emmanuel Center so he or she can participate in the race.
 
Volunteers:  If you'd like to help out before the race or on race day, please email juliefike@holycommunion.
 
If you are looking for a manageable, meaningful and super-fun 5k race, this is your event. See you at the line dance!!
