There will be pre-registration the day of the event starting @ 7:30 AM. The first 150 registered participants will receive a goody bag containing a 5K event t-shirt, coupons/gift certificates to local businesses and other small items (while supplies last). There will also be numerous giveaway drawings after the event. Each participant will be given a 50/50 ticket and that will used for picking the winners of the items being given away. Among the items being given away are handcrafted gold jewelry, Penn State football tickets, gym memberships, gift certificates to local restaurants, businesses and many other items.
Medals will be handed out to the Top Three runners and Top walker in each age group. Timing will be done by Falcon Timing.
All money raised will be donated to the Reeve Irvine Reeve Irvine Research Center and Research For Cure. The center is named after Christopher Reeve and his family and their goal is to cure paralysis after a spinal cord injury. The money raised via the event will go directly to Spinal Cord Injury Research and human trials. The research has shown dramatic improvements in animal studies thus far. The hope and goal is to fund the ongoing trials on humans. The reason I am organizing the event is because I had an injury that has left me a Quadriplegic, paralyzed from the chest down.
