This year, not only will money be raised for the American Heart Association, but also for a local GC resident who is battling severe heart issues. Henry Benjamin is a young husband and father who can no longer work his full time job and who will soon be placed on a heart transplant list. Half of the funds raised from this year’s walk will go directly to Henry and his family.
The family-friendly event begins at 8:30 a.m. (registration at 7:00 a.m.) on the hospital’s campus with a 5k and One Mile Fun Run through the city of Lucedale.
The Easter-themed event will include two FREE Easter egg hunts. One for children five and under and one for children age six through ten. The Easter Bunny will also make an appearance!
The event features face painting and free refreshments. Be sure to register by the March 17th deadline to guarantee a shirt!
