This year we celebrate our 5th Annual 5k to promote adult literacy education!
Join us at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 28th to walk, jog, or run our certified 5k course through beautiful Englewood MetroPark's West Park to celebrate the joys of literacy, health, and community. Our course begins and ends at the Lawwill Shelter, indicated by a green circle on the park map shown here.
Plan to arrive 45 minutes early to check in at our registration table, get something to eat or drink, participate in some pre-5k exercise, listen to music, and visit with friends!
The three fastest men and women in each age bracket will be awarded medals at our closing ceremonies. Age brackets are divided into these groups:
Raffle prizes are $500, $300, and $200. Increase your chances of winning by purchasing extra tickets and supporting a worthy cause!
All 5k participants get one free raffle ticket. Additional tickets can be purchased at $5 for one (1) ticket and $25 for six (6) tickets. Tickets can be purchased in person at the BLC, online, or at the race site before the 5k. You do not need to be present to win. All proceeds benefit the BLC.
To purchase tickets online, visit our Donation page. Make sure to include a comment that indicates the number of raffle tickets you wish to purchase!
Congratulations to this year's raffle winners!
