MUST Gobble Jog

Many of you are probably aware that MUST Ministries has a great Thanksgiving morning walk/race to support the feeding of the homeless and less fortunate. But, did you know that one of the top teams every year has been organized by our own Coach Christine Dahlhauser.

We would like to honor her this year by creating the largest team ever to participate and need your help to do that. Those that have participated have found that it is a great way to start the day with all of their family and friends, and the opportunity to honor a great member of the Pope family will make it even more special. You can walk, run, cheer or even sign up if you can’t be there.

We are also entertaining the thought of a pre-race day get together so please email Coach Blythe at William.blythe@cobbk12.org as you sign up to get on the master email list, to ask questions or to make suggestions.

Click here to get started and we look forward to a great turn out.
