'Pocket Full of Love' Charity Run in Du Quoin inspired with scripture

DU QUOIN, IL (KFVS) -

If you've run a race, you know that a little inspiration is always helpful.

The 4th annual Pocket Full of Love 5K walk and 1 mile run not only raises money for a great cause and helps you get fit, but it also includes scriptures along the route to keep you inspired.

The walk/run will take place on September 20 at 3 p.m. at the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds Labor Pavilion.

Register online at www.familiesinneed.org or the day of the event between 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.

It costs $18 for the run and $15 for the competitive walk.

The first 100 paid competitive entrants will receive a free t-shirt.

The 5K race route will be set with scriptures to give you strength to get through the course.

There will also be a silent auction. All the money raised will be given to the Families in Need Organization at Elkville Christian Church.

The money is distributed to families who've suffered a sudden illness, death, fire, or other catastrophic event.  

In its four years, the group has raised more than $15,000.

For more information or to donate, call Jason Cobin at 618-924-3516.
