The Apple Seed Christian Preschool is getting ready for its sixth annual 5K Run/Walk fundraiser.
The event will be held on Saturday, Sept. 27 at Welch Field on Third Street between Elm and Union Streets. Registration forms for the 5K can be obtained by calling 326-3110.
Registration and check-in will begin at 8 a.m., and the race will begin at 9 a.m. Participants who pre-register by Sept. 12 will receive a t-shirt. The fee for pre-registration is $20. Registration will also be available on the morning of the race for $25. Children under 12 are free. 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.
The preschool is also 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.
