WESTFIELD - The Apple Seed Christian Preschool is getting ready for its fourth annual 5K Run/Walk fundraiser.
The event will be held on Saturday, Oct. 6 at Welch Field on Third Street between Elm and Union Streets. Registration forms for the 5K can be found by calling 326-3110 or online at www.appleseedchristianpreschool.org. Pre-registrations must be received by Monday, Sept. 24. Registration and check-in for those pre-registered will begin at 8 a.m., and the race will begin at 9 a.m., sharp. Pre-registered participants will receive an event t-shirt. Runners, walkers and those who want to cheer them on are all welcome.
The course will be fairly challenging, but the event is taking place at just the right time because the invigorating scent of grapes will be in the air. The course runs from Welch Field on Elm Street to Third Street, across to Spring, up to Bliss, up Allen Road to the highest point where it meets Martin Wright Road and then down to 394, across Bliss and down Elm back to Welch Field.
Right now, the preschool is actively looking for area businesses interested in sponsoring this event. Anyone interested in doing so should call the preschool at 326-3110. This fundraising event directly benefits the Apple Seed Christian Preschool students.
Apple Seed Christian Preschool also has a few openings left for the 2012/2013 school year.
