Snellville – It’s called a Fun Run for a reason.
On Sept. 10, the Snellville Police Explorers Post 805 will host a 5K and Fun Run with the theme of “Super Mario Kart,” named after the popular video game.
Organizers say to expect a good time at the event which will feature Mario, Luigi and friends and will benefit the junior police organization.
Explorers advisor Dawn James said the event will benefit the Post’s 24 Explorers through the purchase of uniforms and covering registration fees for the annual Explorers competition in Gatlinburg, Tenn. which can cost upwards of $250 per attendee.
“Explorers is about teamwork and team spirit,” James said. “The majority of kids who attend are pursuing some sort of career in law enforcement or the military. It provides them discipline and a stable background.”
Registration for the event will take place at 6 a.m., the day of the event at Snellville First Baptist Church, 2400 Main St. E.
