St. Mary's Episcopal Mardi Gras 5K Run/Walk for Rice and Beans
Event Dates and Times
St. Mary's Episcopal Church, located in Andalusia, AL
St. Mary's Episcopal Church, located in Andalusia, AL, will host our 5th annual Mardi Gras 5K Run/Walk for Rice and Beans on Saturday, February 10th, starting at 9 am. This 5K is the principal fundraiser for our Rice and Beans outreach food ministry.
The third Saturday of every month, from 9:00 - 11:00 am, St. Mary's donates three pounds of rice, two pounds of dried beans, a loaf of bread, and a grocery bag of non-perishable items to members of our community. These items are available to anyone in our community who needs/wants them and there are no prerequisites for receiving them. We also serve our guests who participate in receiving these items a hot, home-made breakfast. We serve approximately 180 guests each month.
The 5K begins at 9:00, the Fun Run (1 mile) begins at 10:00, and we serve a homemade meal of red beans and rice with bread pudding for dessert beginning at 10:30. With the $25 5K registration fee, a ticket for lunch and a t-shirt with our "Running St. Mary" is included. Additional lunch tickets can be purchased for $5. We encourage 5K participants to dress in their Mardi Gras running/walking finery and strive to make it a fun experience for everyone!
