Bluffton Self Help will again be the recipient of proceeds from the Tiger Bass Race Series, now in it’s 7th year at Hampton Lake. This year’s event will include a 5K-, 12K- and 1-Mile Fun Run. It will be held at 8 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 20.
The Tiger Bass Race Series is a great example of community working together to create an event focusing on fitness, family, fun and philanthropy. It has become a signature event for the community because of the strong participation and enthusiasm from its attendees, volunteers, sponsors and Hampton Lake property owners.

The race committee hopes to reach its goal of 500 participants and make a donation to Bluffton Self Help, whose mission is to help Blufftonians in critical need of short-term financial assistance and food and clothing, while supporting them to become more self-reliant.
In 2013, Tiger Bass Race organizers hoped to have 250 participants and raise $10,000 for Bluffton Self Help. They exceeded their goals with 300-plus runners and more than 60 sponsors. This success meant that they were able to donate $12,000 to Bluffton Self Help.
