The Getzelmania 5K is a yearly fund-raising fun run, sponsored by The Bridge Community Church of Morrisville, NC for the family of Stephen Getzelmann. Stephen died suddenly from a Strep-A infection in December of 2011. This is the Church?s way of giving back and supporting his family. Proceeds from this event will go towards the Comfort Zone Camp (www.comfortzonecamp.org), a bereavement camp for children who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or primary care giver.
The 5K will begin at 9:00 am, while the 1-mile run/walk will start at 10:15.
The 5K course has been certified and is an out and back with two water stations provided along the way. Go to www.getz5k.com to view a course map.

School Sprit Challenge
This year, we are excited to add an exciting new addition to Getzelmania: the School Spirit Challenge! Local schools are invited to compete to see who can register and run with the most students and teachers. The school with the most students and teachers who run in the race will receive a prize (TBA)! When your students register, be sure and have them fill in the field with their school name. We want to make sure the schools get all the credit they deserve!
