It’s That Time Again! Mark Your Calendars for Run for Lawson!

The 2nd annual Run For Lawson benefit run will be held on Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012. This year we have added a 10k race in addition to the 5k race and the One Mile Fun Run. Last year we had over 650 participants and raised $35,000 for the National Meningitis Association. We are looking to double those numbers this year so help us by inviting your friends! All of the proceeds will go to a great cause.

The event kicks off at 8 a.m. with the One Mile Fun Run, with the 5k and 10k following at 8:30 a.m. One loop around the course completes the 5k run and two loops complete the 10k run. Awards are given in overall and age group categories.

Every year 1,500 Americans hear the devastating news that they have bacterial meningitis. This disease is preventable through vaccination, and by taking part in Run For Lawson, you can help us raise funds, increase awareness and save lives.

The registration fee is $15 per adult and $10 per youth through October 4. The registration fee for the One Mile Fun Run is $15 through October 4. After October 4 the fee will raise to $25. Special event day shirts are available for an additional fee of $5 and must be ordered before September 28.

Keep checking the website for more information, and make sure that you’re following us on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest for fun advice, healthy recipes and exciting race updates.

Can’t wait to see everyone on the course this year!
