Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County Tennessee accepted a donation from Pastor Willie Lyle of the Sango United Methodist Church (UMC) this week from the proceeds of the 2013 Sango Scamper Road Race. Habitat for Humanity has been the beneficiary of this Sango UMC event for over 20 years.
“We are pleased to continue this long-standing partnership with Sango United Methodist Church. Sango UMC has helped lay the foundation for almost every home we’ve built since 1992 through their overwhelmingly generous support from the proceeds of their annual Sango Scamper Road Race. We’re always excited this time of year – preparing our display for the Sango Scamper Road Race and getting ready to cheer on the participants braving the chill of the early morning registration time,” states Shelby Logsdon, executive director of Habitat for Humanity.
“Each year Habitat attends this annual event and provides participants and spectators with information about our mission and housing ministry and how to support our ReStore. We want participants to know that Habitat appreciates everyone involved donating their time and money while having fun running or walking that morning,” explains Logsdon.
The 2014 Sango Scamper, offered by Sango UMC, is a great run for all ages and will be held October 25th. Race participants will receive an event t-shirt and other goodies. All participants under 14 will receive medals for their hard work. Sango UMC also plans to offer door prizes of baked goods and top race finishers in each age group and category will receive a trophy as well as a baked good of their choice baked by members of the church. Expert timing of the race will be performed by the Clarksville Running Club. Participants can choose from the 10K course, the 5K course and the 1 mile scenic stroll. This race also includes a wheelchair bracket which is separate from the other age groups. 1st and 2nd place awards will be awarded to wheelchair participants for 5K & 10K.
