The Friends of the Family Resource Center will hold its third annual 5K Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, Oct. 19.
Registration will begin at 8 a.m., with the race beginning at 9 a.m. at the Rocky Mount Farmers’ Market back parking lot. The route takes participants to Rocky Mount Police Department, where they will turn and end back at the Farmer’s Market.
Proceeds raised during the event will help support victims of domestic violence. Participants are encouraged to wear purple (the color designated to raise awareness for domestic violence), and prizes will be awarded for top runners and best dressed in purple.
