Driving Directions:
Salisbury, Md., is approximately 30 miles west of the popular resort town of Ocean City, one and a half hours southeast of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, two hours from Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and Wilmington, Del.; three hours from Norfolk, Va.; and four and a half hours from New York City.

From the West: Follow Business Route 50 East into Salisbury. Take a right immediately after the bridge onto Mill St. (fifth light in Salisbury). Continue straight through the two intersections. Do not bear right or left. This street becomes Camden Ave. The University is located on the left after approximately one mile.

From the North: Follow Business Route 13 South into Salisbury and proceed four miles to the campus which is located on the right.

Photography: Race-day photos will be taken by FotoJoe Photography and will be available for purchase on the web.

Reason To Run: Timothy Kennard, 48 years old and father of a 7-year-old son, passed away March 11, 2004. He fought a courageous battle against renal cancer. Tim is missed by his family and fellow running friends. This run/walk is in his honor; proceeds going, as Tim requested, to help children and animals.

This year, the proceeds will help Coastal Hospice, specifically for pediatric cases and programs for grieving children who have lost a sibling or a parent to cancer. The Salisbury Horizons Student Enrichment Program, which provides support, education and hope to children from economically-disadvantaged families and our local four-legged friends in need, will also be beneficiaries of the proceeds.

(2010 proceeds went to Wicomico Humane Society, CARA-Companion Animal Rescue Alliance, Nevins Rescue and Pets for Life.)
