DO YOU WANT TO ATTEND THE WEEKEND FOR FREE?

HAVE YOU EVER RUN A HALF MARATHON or 5K?

ARE YOU A RUNNER? (No… You can walk the races too)…

  • For the last 5+ years Amy has hosted a few weeks of BAREFOOT REPUBLIC CAMP at her farm. It’s a summer camp program that focuses on cultivating Christ-centered relationships between individuals and families from diverse racial, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Every year Amy hosts BAREFOOT AT THE FARM and we want more and more students to be able to attend, who otherwise couldn’t. SOOOOOO… let’s do this together!
  • Last year one of Amy’s Team members, Derek, took part in a training program and ran a Half Marathon (prior to that he’d only run/walked some very slow 5ks) and with the help of several Friends-Of-Amy (FOA) members was able to raise over $10,000 toward the Barefoot Republic Scholarship fund – making it possible for over 40 kids to attend BAREFOOT AT THE FARM – who might otherwise not been able.
  • This year we want to do even more… So… we’ve decided to make a very special offer. Anyone who wants to participate in the Rock-N-Roll Music City Marathon with our team and can raise a minimum of $1,500 will get a FREE weekend pass.
  • And the best part is you can do the race anywhere, so even if you can’t make it to Nashville to participate with the team, you can do it in your own hometown.
  • If you are interested please email derek@themwsgroup.com – he will provide you with more details and will explain how this will work.
  • Fundraising / Training will begin November 1st and we will run on Saturday, April 25th.
  • Amy will not be able to do the run with us this year, but she is looking forward to cheering on all participants.
  • The minimum distance for participation on the team will be a 5K (3.1 miles)… Derek will run the half marathon here in Nashville (13.1 miles)… of course marathoners can do the full 26.2 mile course… but we may look at you like you’re a little crazy!
  • Again… email derek@themwsgroup.com to be added to the team.
  • ALL Persons who successfully complete their fundraising and a race, whether here in Nashville or “virtually” in their hometown will receive an autographed TEAM AMY / RUN BAREFOOT MEDAL (in addition to their TENNESSEE WEEKEND PASS FOR FREE.
