Dracula is out to change his reputation of doom and gloom by helping to raise donations for abandoned and disadvantaged children in Romania. Draculas Dash for Hope 5k and 1/2-Mile Kids Run is a fundraiser for Utah-based nonprofit Bridge of Love.
This is our 6th annual charity 5k and it keeps getting better every year. For 2013, weve added a shorter run for kids, made it an evening event and planned fun Halloween-themed changes. There will be refreshments, medals, prizes and a raffle. Costumes are encouraged but not required.
Its been called simply Race for Hope prior to this years name change. While the odd-couple pairing of Dracula with hope may be a first, the cloaked counts story originates in the Transylvania region of Romania, a country with thousands of abandoned and disadvantaged children who desperately need our help. This race is all about coming together for a great cause while enjoying an exhilarating run and fun under an autumn morning sky.
Medals will be awarded to the top runners in each age group. All participants will be given a race t-shirt and entered in a raffle for prizes donated by local businesses and volunteers. Additionally, runners can choose to collect donations for Bridge of Love. The one who collects the most will win a 32" LED flatscreen TV. All participants who donate $200 or more will receive a $20 gift card.
Packet pick up and same day registratioin will be from 7:00 -8:30 am the morning of the race.
