Our team at Love on Wheels is excited to announce that we are the selected nonprofit for the 2016 Grassland Gallop, a 6k run, 2k walk & 1k kids’ dash in the Grassland community in Franklin, TN.
That means we are planning this exciting event to benefit the precious children we serve, & we need your help.
Do you have a heart to serve, enjoy being outdoors, & are interested in being a part of our amazing volunteer team?
If so, please join us at our first volunteer meeting this Thursday night to learn more about the Grassland Gallop & how you can get involved.
Volunteer opportunities for the Grassland Gallop include managing water stations along the race course, organizing the kid’s craft station, face painting, judging Halloween costumes, setting up food & coffee stands, handing out awards, assembling goodie bags, & more.
Founder of Love on Wheels, Kathy Kunkel, D.V.M., said she believes this great community event will be a great way to show children that we care.
"Many children entering the foster care system carry around their few personal belongings in trash bags," said Kunkel. "As we prepare for the Grassland Gallop & fulfill our mission of filling suitcases with new & safe essential/comfort items, we inspire dialogue about the foster care system in general & the needs of these deserving children.”
Every year, the Bethlehem United Methodist Church’s Grassland Gallop raises money & awareness for a local nonprofit.
On October 29th, The Grassland Gallop will serve children in the foster care system in Williamson County & across the state through Love on Wheels.
“As we continue to take action & raise awareness, we improve the lives of the children & deliver a message of hope & encouragement,” Kunkel said.
Our first meeting for the Grassland Gallop will be at 6pm on Thursday, July 23 at Bethlehem United Methodist Church, (2419 Bethlehem Loop Rd. Franklin, TN) Conference Room One in Franklin, TN.
"Love on Wheels was founded & is operating in right here in Grassland. This is a wonderful opportunity to participate in this annual, family-fun, Grassland community event,” Kunkel said.
“Let's stand together & make a difference!"
