Exeter FFA invites you to join the Foothill Farm Run on April 25, 2015 at Exeter High School Football Stadium. The event will include a 5k Walk/Run, a Fun Run Relay and a Kid’s Run followed by a carnival and agriculture showcase.
In the year 2050, the world’s population is expected to reach 9 billion. In order to feed the growing population, farming will have to increase production 100% on diminishing available farm land. By creating awareness, we hope agriculture will remain a top priority in our state and community. Through the Foothill Farm Run, Exeter FFA and it’s run sponsors will:
•Increase understanding of the agriculture industry.
•Promote awareness of the scientific, economic and mechanical resources needed to produce a safe, reliable, and affordable food source.
•Promote healthy lifestyles.
“Learning to do, doing to learn, earning to live and living to Serve.” One powerful sentence that culminates FFA, the premier national youth leadership organization. Exeter FFA is over 450 members strong. The Agriculture program aims to prepare students with technical skills in the agriculture industry, as well as build their leadership experiences. Graduates from the Agriculture program go on to pursue careers inside and outside the agriculture industry, attend trade schools, universities and colleges. Proceeds from this event will be used to fund student scholarships to attend leadership & community service conferences, student led community service projects and other leadership activities.
We hope that you can join us on April 25, 2015 for fun, running and awareness. Sponsorship and runner registration is availibe through our website: www.exeterffa.weebly.com
