Mission: The 2nd annual Follow Your Heart 5k event in historic downtown Monroe brings the community together to address hunger, homelessness, and education in our area. Your registration fee goes directly to providing Title 1 schools in Union County with essential items they may not be able to afford otherwise. You would be supporting the students and teachers of East Elementary, Walter Bickett, Monroe Middle and Monroe High! By running or walking, you will also support the Union County Community Shelter, including the purchase of new beds and items for individual, families, and children moving from the Shelter into housing.

The Follow Your Heart 5k includes runners/walkers from all areas of our community including students, families, community leaders, businesses, and nonprofits.

This year, the race will be officially timed.
