Pay it Forward 5k


We’re excited to announce the second annual Rocky Mount UMC Pay It Forward 5k on November 21, 2015. This is a unique race because after finishing the 5k, each runner will be given a water bottle with CASH inside. Each bottle contains anywhere from $10 to $500! Runners are invited to “pay it forward” by using the cash to donate to a charity or help someone in need. You could use it to help find a cure to a disease, or maybe save Christmas for a boy or girl. We think it’s a great concept that we hope will catch on everywhere!

Last year the event sold out with 600 participants. This year, even though we are increasing the limit on participants to 1,000, we expect the event to sell out again, so be sure and register soon! Registration opens July 1 at 12:00 a.m.
