A Big Day Coming for Common Heart

We have 3 big events happening on Saturday July 4.

Common Heart Firecracker Run - This is our 3rd year holding a series of races in the quaint village of Lake Park.  With volunteers arriving at 6 am, we begin the day in preparation for the 4 races featured as part of this event.  Runners in the 10k will begin their trek at 7:30 am.  8:30 am the 5k run/walk begins. The 1k and Kid's Firecracker Dash follows at 9:15 am and 9;30 am.  We have medals and awards for overall winners in each race and age group winners in the 10k & 5k. This race is one of our three main fundraising events each year.  Our goal is to raise $10,000.  This represents a weeks worth of groceries for 400 families.
Three ways you can be a part.

  • Register to run/walk
  • Register to volunteer
  • Register as a HotShot and fund-raise as a part of this event.

Indian Trail Fourth of July Parade - This year will be the first year that we will be participating in the parade.  This will give us a chance to get the new truck out for the community to see.  Thanks to the Grace and Hope Foundation and so many friends and donors, we were able to purchase a new (to us) box truck.  We will decorate it and add it to the parade.  If you want to help decorate it or ride with it contact 

Common Heart Anniversary - July 6th is the 9th anniversary of Common Heart.  In 2006 four friends began the journey that has become Common Heart, Common Cupboard and Common Things Thrift Store. So many more friends have joined this movement demonstrating God's love in our community over the past 9 years.  In celebration, Common Things Thrift Store will be holding an Anniversary Sale beginning July 4.  Details to follow ... but lets just say there will be some really hot deals!
