    Join the Family Justice Center on Saturday, June 25, 2022 for the fifth annual Bacon Around the Bend 5k! Participants will complete this 5k piggy parade while feasting on savory strips of meat-candy. All finishers are invited to celebrate their achievement with post-race bacon-themed snacks at a finish line party hosted at Corby's Irish Pub. Participants over the age of 21 will also have the opportunity to toast their achievement with festive libations (bacon and Bloody Mary's anyone?). To celebrate the fifth running of Bacon Around the Bend 5K, all registered participants will receive a one-of-a-kind medal! 

    Please note that this is family fun run and NOT a timed event; the bacon is the true prize!
