Weddington Run to Honor 5K Race
The Second Annual Weddington Run to Honor 5K race is scheduled for Saturday, April 17, 2010 at the Weddington High School stadium. All proceeds from the fundraiser will go to the American Cancer Society through Union Countyâ€™s Relay for Life. The event includes two separate races that participants can register for; a Â½ mile fun run/walk around the Weddington Stadium track and a 5K road race on Twelve Mile Creek and Deal Roads that finishes at the Stadium. The Run to Honor provides each participate the unique opportunity to â€œhonorâ€ those loved ones that have been impacted by cancer by writing their names on the back of the race shirt. Registration fees are $20 per person or $40 for the entire family. Each participate will receive a race t-shirt. Last yearâ€™s inaugural Run to Honor race involved 300 participants and raised over $4,000 for the American Cancer Society. Information and registration forms are available on the WHS website under â€œDaily Announcementsâ€. Registration forms can also be picked up at the front office. Come out and join in this huge family-oriented community event.
