Hickory Crawdads + Fleet Feet Sports Home Run Trot 5k run/walk
Benefiting Matt Jones
Saturday, May 2nd at 8 am
L.P. Frans Stadium
A fun 5k race that includes the love of baseball! Run around L.P.Frans Stadium to collect your 3 bases (miles) and finish by crossing home plate!!! Participants receive a t-shirt and ticket to that night's baseball game. The first 200 registered will receive a voucher for a hot dog and soda at the game.
This year, all proceeds from the race will benefit our dear friend, Matt Jones, who suffered a massive stroke on January 8th, 2020. This came to us all as a shock because Matt is known for his athleticism and meticulous diet. Matt is the father of 4 children who care for their father greatly. He is an avid runner and coaches many of Fleet Feet’s Training Programs. Matt has a long road of recovery ahead of him. As you can imagine, with extensive hospital stays, ambulance rides, rehabilitation, and equipment his medical bills will be enormous. He is fortunate to have medical insurance coverage, although we all know insurance doesn’t cover everything. Your participation in this year’s Home Run Trot will help take this financial burden off Matt and his family. Matt is a wonderful person and we are praying for a smooth recovery.
