I had a chance to speak with Kirk Ward from Houlton's Military Street Baptist Church about the 5K, and here's what he had to say.

Military Street Baptist Church is on of three churches who partner with the Strong Tower Orphanage, who develop opportunities along with monetary gifts and expenditures of the orphanage.

You're encouraged to take part in the 5K Love Run/Walk beginning at 9 a.m. at Military Street Baptist Church on Drake's Hill in Houlton.

You can register in advance of the race at Main Street Fitness, Country North Gifts and also at the church, or pre-register online at http://www.houltonmsbc.org.

Cost is $20 (includes bib, t-shirt and light refreshments). T-shirts are guaranteed to those who register by September 25th.
