Jackrabbit 5K 2020

Forward Engineers is proud to announce our sponsorship of the 8th Annual Jackrabbit 5K race. This is our second year to sponsor, but hardly our first year to participate!

Hosted by the Flagstone Church of Christ in Bentonville, this family friendly charity event includes a 5K Run, 1/2 mile fun walk, pancake breakfast, silent auction, door prizes, games, and more!  All while raising money for a great cause.

All proceeds are used to purchase quality athletic shoes for local neighbors in need. Last year’s event put shoes on the feet of 300 people right here in NWA including men, women, children, adults with special needs, and members of the homeless community. To date, the Jackrabbit has put shoes on nearly 1,300 people!  This is not the usual “come and get ‘em” shoe giveaway. Organizers target those in need, measure their feet, and order a pair of brand new shoes just for them.

The race will be held on April 18, 2020. The race is chip timed and the course is flat so it’s a great opportunity to get a new personal record. If you love running, watching others run or just having fun be sure to come out for this entertaining event! More information and the ability to register can be found on the Jackrabbit 5K website.
