Runners, walkers raise money for Megan’s Mobile Grocery

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Runners and walkers laced up their running shoes at First Christian Church Saturday afternoon to raise money for Megan’s Mobile Grocery, a mobile grocery store that serves areas that do not have easy access to a grocery store.

Nearly 300 participants ran the 5K race through the streets of downtown Bowling Green. Megan’s Mobile Grocery was onsite in the parking lot of First Christian Church.

Britney Harris, one of the organizers of the race, said holding the race accomplishes two purposes: it benefits Megan’s Mobile Grocery financially but it also helps keep the memory of Megan Davidson alive.

Davidson worked in the community to ease the burden for residents who had difficulty traveling to grocery stores. Harris also said Davidson was an advocate of fitness and exercise and this race also helped promote that goal, as well.

After the race, Megan’s Mobile Grocery was presented with a check for $20,000.
