NOVEMBER 4th, 2017 - Race begins at 8AM - Lake David Park, Groveland
The City of Groveland’s Juice Jog 5K is entering its 4th year! The 5K will be held on November 4, 2017 at 8am. The event begins at Lake David Park and the race course takes participants through the neighborhood of Groveland fondly referred to as “The Hill”. This event began as a way to raise funds for local charity groups, and this year we are raising funds for FAITH Neighborhood Center.
FAITH Neighborhood Center provides support to low income families and individuals in South Lake County by offering assistance in areas such as: food, clothing, small appliances, miscellaneous household items, financial support for families about to have their utilities turned off, medical support, educational/training opportunities, and assistance applying for food stamps, Medicaid, and Emergency Assistance. Between January and June of 2017 FAITH Neighborhood Center served 4,560 families; 1,630 seniors; 7,009 children; 16,301 individuals; and served 163,000 pounds of food to the community. FAITH Neighborhood Center can feed a family of four, three meals a day, for four days with just $10, and is raising money to purchase a refrigerated truck so that they can make food drops that contain perishable items to food deserts in the area. The City of Groveland Parks & Recreation Department believes that raising funds that will help provide the residents of our community with free access to healthy, nutritious foods is a priority that will enhance the overall quality of life of our community and help to promote a sense of community in Groveland.
