Registration is now open for Common Heart’s fifth annual July 4 Firecracker Run to raise money to feed local families in need. Early Bird discount registration ends June 4.
The event, which features a 10K, 5K, 1K and Kids Firecracker Dash, will be held in Union County’s Village of Lake Park. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third-place winners in each age group in the 10K & 5K. Overall winners – male and female in all races – also will be named and prizes will be given to all kids participating in the Dash.
Prizes also will be awarded for the most “festively” dressed and free kids games will be held during the event.
Participants are encouraged to bring nonperishable food to the race for Common Heart’s Common Cupboard food pantries.
Also, NEW this year: Common Heart is adding the Freedom from Hunger Walk (to occur at the same time as the race). Participants will collect donations for Common Heart prior to the event and walk (or run!) to help end hunger in our community. These participants will enjoy free event registration and can win prizes based on the amount of donations collected.
