A Labor Day Weekend Tradition
Don’t miss the 11th running of the Go Jump in the Lake 5K and 1.5 Mile Fun Run/Walk in Boiling Spring Lakes, less than 20 minutes from Wilmington or Southport. The Southport Rotary’s family friendly event promotes health and wellness in our community and they are again partnering with New Hope Clinic to raise funds for their charitable healthcare programs, as well as for other Rotary funded organizations, and to help Boiling Spring Lakes get back to normal after the devastation from Hurricane Florence.
The Go Jump in the Lake run is exactly how it sounds: a race with the finish line at the banks of Spring Lake, where jumping is highly encouraged! And yes, the lake really survived Hurricane Florence! This is a flat course mainly consisting of paved asphalt, meandering through scenic Boiling Spring Lakes that is both stroller and wheelchair friendly!
