Conway K-Life will host the fifth annual 1985K, pronounced nineteen eighty-five ‘k,’ on Saturday Feb. 23 at 5 p.m.
The 5K, a USATF certified road race, is hosted by and benefits the nonprofit community-wide youth ministry, K-Life.
The 80s theme dusk run is complete with “dance stations” sprinkled throughout the course where participants can jam to some 80’s music, be cheered on by students involved in the ministry and continue on to the finish.
Martin Moix, race director, said, “It is a great way for the whole family to get outside and participate in a heart healthy activity, for February being heart month, while also supporting an organization that spends over 12,000 hours positively influencing 500 fifth- through 12th-grade students in Conway.”
The first 250 participants will receive a Dri-fit Race T-shirt, and race bag filled with items from local businesses.
“The Conway community, and Central Arkansas for that matter, has shown great support for K-Life over the last 20 years. I am proud to be leading the ministry through its 20th year of positively influencing students and families. We are excited to host a fundraising event again that encourages families to spend time together, exercising outdoors for a good cause.” Anderson Wilkins, director of K-Life, said.
