We hope you will join us to support disability awareness + raise funds for operating costs for The Lily Pad Cafe by participating in the 12th Annual Leap 4 The Lily Pad (formerly Run Up for Downs) on April 13, 2024 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 to help bring The Lily Pad to fruition, and look forward to a long awaited opening in 2024 and providing dates once we are able to!
The 12th 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 Todd Thompson and The Lucky Hand Band sponsored by First South Farm Credit. We are gathering our food partners for our Pepsi Food Tent and featuring drinks courtesy of Brown Bottling Group
