Every September at Amy Grant’s Farm in Franklin, TN, we gather for a night of inspiring camp stories, youth performances, and live music. This is the time of year when we catch our breath, look back and reflect, and feel very grateful for every single child and their experience at camp this summer.  Whether it was discovering an exciting activity, building a new friendship, or deepening a relationship with God, it is a blessing to us to know that Barefoot Republic was a part each child’s experience.

5K4MLK 2020 NOTICE: The staff at Barefoot Republic would like to thank you for your interest in our 5k event. To ensure we are able to bring it back in 2020, please consider volunteering. If you are interested, please contact Jenny.

We run on MLK Day so our campers can keep attending camp. All money raised during the 5K4MLK goes straight into our scholarship fund. We desire to see all races, cultures & socio-economic groups be celebrated and come together in unity. Understanding the impact Martin Luther King Jr. had on calling for racial freedom, celebrating diversity and creating unity, we wanted to host an event using these themes as the ground work for bringing people together.  Knowing the large running and exercise community that exists in Nashville, this is a great fit.
