Join us for the 11th Annual Leap 4 The Lily Pad (formerly Run Up for Downs) on April 15, 2023 in Ridgeland, Mississippi!
We hope you will join us to support disability awareness + raise funds for operating costs for The Lily Pad Cafe by participating in the 11th Annual Leap 4 The Lily Pad (formerly Run Up for Downs) on April 15, 2023 at the Methodist Rehabilitation Center Green Space in Ridgeland, MS!
ALL proceeds will go towards operational costs of The Lily Pad Cafe. The Lily Pad will employ & train young adults with intellectual & developmental disabilities to equip these men & women with the tools necessary to obtain employment by local businesses so that they can not only achieve their full potential, but display to the community their abundant talents and abilities. With YOUR help, we have been able to raise over $600,000 for The Lily Pad!
The 11th Annual Leap 4 The Lily Pad will kick off at the green space in front of Methodist Rehab in Ridgeland, MS with a fun run, a 5K run/walk, and a 0.0 race. Enjoy live music featuring Mike Rob and The 601 Band sponsored by First South Farm Credit. Our Brown Bottling Food Tent is shaping up to one of our best featuring drinks courtesy of Brown Bottling Group + food from Lost Pizza, Primos Cafe, Angelo's BBQ Pizza and Italian, Wholly Smokes Cooking Company, Slim Chickens, Froghead Grill, Chillin on the Rez, Mudbugs, Super Shakes + other local restaurants! There will also be a kid zone + much more!
