Starting at 11am sharp we will kick the day off with a .5K Walk for History. Yes, you read correctly, 0.5K, or about 4 city blocks! While some non-profits raise money with a 5K fun run, we felt that a “brisk walk” between Ruthmere, Havilah Beardsley House and back was more our speed.
This .5K event will be "chipped" for those serious competitors---potato chips and corn chips to be precise! Yes, there will be “fueling stations” along the route with "healthy treats" such as corn dogs, bacon, doughnut bites, energy drinks and more to keep participants from dozing off.
Sign up by July 10th as individuals or as a team to help us raise money during this fun event. Entry fee of $25 per person or $100 for teams of 5 (additional team participants $20) includes commemorative T-shirt and bragging rights prizes. Please designate shirt size for each participant when you register.
At the conclusion of the .5K Walk for Histoy, join the free public event, the Old Fashioned Ice Cream Social!
