St. Peter's Lodge No. 21 Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of New Milford, CT will be holding its annual charity "RUN SANTA RUN" 5K Run/Walk and Kids Fun Run at Young's Field Park in New Milford, Connecticut on November 30th, 2013.
The run will benefit the American Diabetes Association and Masonicare.
Race director Billy "Mo" Buckbee was moved to inform people on how dangerous the disease is after suffering a recent health crisis.
“It’s important for people to realize that we need to make efforts to get out and move! Walk, run …. Do what you can to stay healthy. We’ve added Masonicare this year as an additional recipient as we want to assist with those less able to provide for themselves later in life. We feel it’s a great compliment to the existing program” said Buckbee.
“This race is not a traditional road race, as we encourage costumes, walkers … make it fun and bring the family. This year brings a fun “Star Wars” theme to Christmas and you have so many more costume options! The scouts help out, the local volunteers are such wonderful people and we even collect toys that we give to “Toys for Tots” in lieu of payment for the kids fun run.
Registration starts at 9 a.m. and the race kicks off at 12 p.m. All ages are welcome. The cost is $28.00 per entry, unless you pre-register online. The first 300 registered runners will receive a free event t-shirt and a photo op and a hug from Santa himself at the race.
