Wake Forest RFL Fundraising Inc. – a tax-exempt organization made up of a group of community volunteers – will sponsor a 5K themed run in downtown Wake Forest on Saturday morning, April 29, beginning at 9 a.m. This fundraiser is in support of the Raleigh Relay For Life that will be held in June at Leesville High School.
This is a run for individual participants and a real 5K relay for three-people teams, each person running one mile. The run is a timed event by Precision Race on a certified course starting and finishing in front of the Wake Forest Chamber of Commerce at 350 South White Street in downtown Wake Forest.
Each participant receives a runner bag of goodies including a runner shirt and valuable items from local merchants. First place overall men and women will receive a pair of Rayban Sunglasses from the Eyecare Center of Wake Forest. Individual awards and gifts will be provided to category winners as well as those dressed in theme. Random drawings for valuable prizes will be held throughout the awards ceremony.
The theme of the run is Margaritaville and participants are encouraged to dress in Parrothead dress. A live DJ performance will provide Buffett music throughout the event.
There will be themed face painting by Cindi’s Faces for participants and non-runners alike. Food and beverages for participants will be provided at the conclusion of the run. There will be local merchant booths with products available for purchase at discounted rates. The White Street Brewery will open early for those wishing to partake.
