Why wait until the end of the year when Christmas comes to Clearwater in July! That's right, it's July and we are celebrating at the Christmas and Cadillac 5K where you can earn the Christmas or Cadillac finisher's medal.
There will be no presents but that doesn't stop the GIVING as this is our biggest back pack toy drive of the year for Pinellas County students. The 5K run walk begins at 9 am at Buffalo Wild Wings In Clearwater. Check in is race day at Buffalo Wild Wings as early as 8 a.m.
This race is our 2nd largest fundraiser of the year as we gather backpacks for the Backpack lady project 501c3 which are hand delivered to children who can not afford them in the Pinellas County School District. The backpack/toy DRIVE is not mandatorty but we hope each of you will bring one (OR MORE) backpack(s) for any age student to race check in . All packs will be donated to great kids through the Backpack Lady Project.
