This Saturday (March 12, 2011), thousands of Jacksonville runners and walkers will gather downtown for the 34th annual Gate River Run.The 15k race the largest in the country and hosts some of the fastest runners in the world.
It also brings out some of the most hilarious costumes. People run the 9 plus miles in all sorts of outfits and one of those people is Carey Hepler, who always runs the race dressed in a grass skirt.
Hepler is working to raise awareness for the homeless and uses the Gate River Run each year as a place to collect thousands of shoes and t-shirts for the homeless. He’ll be there today, so if you head down to pick up your race packet, remember to bring a few things to donate.
Just look for the man in a grass skirt! Oh, and spread the word on Facebook.

Bar Karma is a new venture in television between Worldwide Biggies, Current TV and Will Wright (creator of the hugely popular computer games The Sims, Sim City and Spore). The show itself is created through use of Will’s “StoryMaker” program, which the audience can access via the show’s website and use to help write, develop and produce the series. The public can also vote on which way they want to the story to go and then see their choices unfold on TV as they are brought to life by our amazing production team! Bar Karma itself is described as “a mystical watering hole traveling through time and space“.
