Welcome to WKRG’s “Mark Your Calendar” for Friday, March 1, 2019. John Nodar welcomes Renie Kennemer to talk about the 8th Annual Funky Monkey 5K and Fun Run.
The Funky Monkey 5K follows a USTAF-certified course through the University of South Alabama campus with the start and finish at the Moulton Bell Tower.
The Fun Run is a ¾ mile course and starts at 8:45am. Kids up to 12-years-old are eligible to win awards.
Everyone who registers is invited to the Funky Monkey finish party where Cammie’s Old Dutch Ice Cream Shoppe will create Mobile’s Biggest Banana Split at 65-feet long! Hang out for chocolate milk, bananas, door prizes and awards!
You could help your favorite charity take home a $1,000 grant from the Thompson Foundation. Include the name of the charity you support – must be a 501(c)3 – on your Funky Monkey 5K registration form. Then recruit more of your friends to do the same. The charity with the most support will receive a $1,000 grant from the Thompson Foundation on race day!
All proceeds from the Funky Monkey 5K and Fun Run benefit the Thompson Foundation. Since its inception, the Foundation has invested more than $850,000 in organizations, programs, and activities that strengthen our social framework, education, and sense of community.
