Finish Line After Party

What makes a Defining Moment Events race unique is the Finish Line After Party! We believe that running should be fun and after you accomplish your goal you deserve to celebrate! Stick around after the race to enjoy post-race refreshments which will include hot chocolate and coffee and Valentine cupcakes! Plus you and your sweetie…or running buddies.. can get your Valentine photos taken after you cross the finish line. Then you’ll be ready to jump out on the “dance floor” and dance to some popular love songs. Don’t miss out on the fun!

 

Charity

We believe in making our races more than just a race. We are committed to giving back and with each of our races we support a charity or cause that is making a difference. We are excited to support Habitat for Humanity through the 2018 Cupid Shuffle. Habitat for Humanity partners with people here in our community, and all over the world, to help them build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With your support, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and for their families. When you register for Cupid Shuffle 2018 you will have the opportunity to make a donation to Habitat for Humanity. In addition, a portion of the proceeds of this event will be donated to Habitat for Humanity in Brookhaven, MS. For more information on Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln County, click here.
