Shamrock Sprint, presented by German American Bank, is a Saint Patrick’s Day themed free kids fun to welcome spring. The event features two races, a 1/2K and a 2K. The 1/2K race (awards for kids Kindergarten and under) and the 2K race (12 years old and younger) have kids running down the blocked-off streets of downtown Franklin. Sponsorships from the event support Kids on the Block programs in Simpson County.
Grant Professional / Development Assistant
I started working at Kids on the Block as a Development Intern January of 2021. As I was finishing my Bachelors of Arts in Theatre, I fell in love with the puppets! I loved everything we were doing, especially our work in Child Abuse Prevention. Following my graduation from WKU, I was brought on as a Development Assistant and Grant Professional. It’s been an amazing adventure since!
When I’m not helping with the puppets, you might find me singing, reading, or geeking out over the latest theatre news. I also enjoy trying out new adventures with my husband, Reggie, our dog and two cats.
