2nd Annual Derby Day

Racing to end the impact of poverty in Collin County, The Seven Loaves CommUnity presents Derby Day, a 5K and Fun Run and Festival, benefiting Seven Loaves CommUnity, Plano Children’s Medical Clinic, and The West Side Clinic.

Saturday, May 4th
7 to 11 a.m.
St. Andrew United Methodist Church, 5801 W. Plano Parkway, Plano
Event Co-Chairs: Nancy Frazier and Jane Abigail

Strollers and four-legged friends are welcome to join the Fun Run as well!

Seven Loaves CommUnity, which serves over 1,000 weekly, was established in 2009 to begin providing immediate food relief to the food insecure.  The program has expanded and now includes Joseph’s Coat, a clothing closet; Project Hope, a mentoring program with a focus on family, budgeting, education, health and other family matters; and referral services to medical access through Plano Children’s Clinic and The West Side Clinic. Plano Children’s Medical Clinic opened in 1991 in response to the need for medical care for low income children.  The West Side Clinic, a part of the Collin County Adult Clinic, provides limited primary medical care to uninsured adults, 18 years of age and older.  All three organizations are more than service providers - they are lifelines of hope and vital to Collin County.  

Seven Loaves Project Hope client Monique Williams, 32, and her family will serve as this event’s first honorary chairs.  Her life and that of her two children have been transformed with the help of all three Derby Run beneficiaries.

Run registration includes Seven Loaves’ 4th Birthday Party following the run with food, snow cones, a dunking booth, bounce house, basketball shoot, games, and more.  Presented by St. Andrew’s Mom to Mom Group and Lukes Locker, registration is available at
