On Saturday, March 2 at 1 p.m. the East Georgia American Red Cross will host its annual Run 4 Red 5K and 10.1K (formerly known as Sleighbell 5k.) The proceeds from the race will benefit the continued work of the American Red Cross East Georgia Chapter. Your participation in our event is a wonderful opportunity to support the Red Cross in our mission to prevent and alleviate human suffering. This year, our chapter has responded to 288 local disasters, Hurricane Issac and Hurricane Sandy.
We encourage all ages of runners and walkers to participate in our event. The 5K will begin at 1 p.m. and the 10.1K will begin shortly after at 2 p.m. There will be 25 prizes available at the event for the overall best finishing times and the top three times in each age group. The entire course will be on paved streets inside Sandy Creek Park.
