Ever dream of putting on your favorite Halloween costume and running in an exhilarating race through the streets of a cool haunted, I mean, HISTORIC neighborhood? And of being chased by zombies and monsters while burning off those extra Candy Corns? Well heres your chance to make that dream a reality if you dare!
The Port Norfolk Civic League is excited to present the first annual Port Norfolk BOO-yah! 5K and Little Monsters Fun Run on October 28, 2012. This race benefits the Port Norfolk Parks Fund and The Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia. Those who brave our uniquely challenging race will zoom past some crazy, spooky and amazing houses, including the infamous MARYLAND MANSION which draws hundreds of thrill seekers each year with its incredible Halloween displays.
PoNo is known for its over the top Halloween displays, but this year, our residents promise to raise the bar and knock your socks off with their Halloween decorations. Prepare to be wowed!
While Halloween can be spooky, we know it';s just for fun, but there is nothing funny about being hungry and having no food. Hunger is REALLY scary, and thats why we are asking each race participant to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the Foodbank. Each donated item will qualify you for entrance into a special raffle drawing, and we will have some really spooktacular items that you will definitely want, so bring those food donations! Do a good deed for a very worthy cause, and maybe win a great prize! Who could ask for more?
And, if you really want to do something great, you can start your own fundraising page for the Foodbank! You can register yourself, or register as part of a team! Go here and learn more:
So bring us your ghosts, ghouls and vamps, your monsters, your favorite cartoon characters if your rendition of Halloween finery is selected as best costume, you will be immortalized in our photo gallery, and have guaranteed bragging rights for an entire YEAR! Come join us for fun and games at the BOOyah!
