Giddy Up Gators 5K Run/Walk

When: October 16, 2021
Where: Gainesville, FL
Race type(s): 5K
Please join us for HOPE’s Giddy Up Gators 5K Run/Walk event on Oct. 16 at St. Francis Catholic Academy. This true cross-country course is easy enough for most walkers, but provides a nice challenge for those who want to run.
Runners/walkers must be at least 13 years old to sign up and fully participate.
The course is NOT stroller-friendly, but we will have plenty of fun games and activities set up for children under 13, including “pony” races. 
The proceeds of this race will go to HOPE, Horses Helping People, a 501c3 charity organization that provides life-altering equine-assisted therapy and learning activities for children and adults with special needs. 
We hope to see you there!
