The fifth annual Pooler 5K will be Saturday, September 6, 2014 at 8:00 am. Come out and show your support for those who have been wounded, injured or become ill while serving in our military. The Festival in the Park will be Saturday evening from 4:00 pm - 9:30 pm Pooler Park off Rogers Street. This will be a great hometown festival with lots of great food, a free concert and a wonderful fireworks show! The Festival is FREE and open to the public.
The Pooler 5k and Patriot Weekend are efforts that originated with the First Presbyterian Church of Pooler as they sought to meet a real need and be engaged in their community for the sake of the gospel.
The 2012 race had over 600 runners and raised $20,000 for soldiers. Check out the photos from last year to see what it was like.
To pull off this great weekend, we will need sponsors, volunteers and people to help promote the event.
The Warrior Transition Battalion at Ft. Stewart
The proceeds from Festival and 5K race will benefit the Warrior Transition Battalion at Ft. Stewart, the place where wounded, injured and ill soldiers go to heal.
