Join Families in Transition (FIT) for the Wicked FIT Run, a family-friendly 5k run/walk dedicated to “chasing away homelessness” in New Hampshire. The event will be held on Saturday, October 27, starting at 9am at Rollins Park in Concord, NH. Proceeds from the Wicked FIT Run will go towards helping FIT provide housing and services to homeless families and individuals in Concord and Manchester. There will also be a free shorter Kids Run and activities. Halloween costumes are strongly encouraged and prizes will be awarded in many categories, including the best individual and themed team costume.
