Looking for a reason to get in shape for summer? Look no further, as a new 5K race is being introduced to Sussex with proceeds going to a very worthy cause.
Kevin Ganiere, a representative with Life Church, says the Village Park is the perfect space considering they recently opened up another location.
"We've done it at Germantown's Kinderberg Park up the street from our Germantown campus for five years," Ganiere said. "But last year we started another campus at the Marcus Majestic Theater, and Sussex seemed like a great spot in between."
Life Church organizes the race as a fundraiser for missionaries around the world. Since its creation in 2000, the church has raised more than $1 million to help fund missions, and its hoping to contribute even more with the race in Sussex. Wether you decide to run, walk, bike, rollerblade or even skateboard, Life Church is happy to accept all participants.
