All proceeds will go to the YMCA of Statesboro.
After the 5K, treat yourself to some well-deserved chili at the Chili Cook-off brought to you by the Statesboro Convention and Visitor’s bureau. Vote for People’s Choice for just $1, and the winner will receive a trophy. All donations of the Chili Cook-off will go to the Boys and Girls Club.
