Fool's Day 5K @ Causeway Cove Marina & RV Park
Fools Day 5k is a professionally-timed race for participants of all ages and abilities. Put on a pair of novelty glasses (included with registration) and “Be a Blessing in Disguise” for the 53,957 households in St. Lucie County that earn less than what it costs to afford the basic necessities. Join friends and neighbors to run, jog or walk through a unforgettable 3.1 mile course filled with silly string, chattering teeth and other fun surprises. In addition to helping raise the crucial funds that fuel our mission, your participation will help shine a light on the dark and demoralizing cycle of poverty in St. Lucie County. The goal of this community-based event is to raise funds and awareness for United Against Poverty of St. Lucie County, a nonprofit dedicated to inspiring and empowering people living in poverty to lift themselves and their families to economic self-sufficiency.
