Proceeds from the race will help fund resources for survivor programs and citizen training. For more information go to www.nccsafe.org. Race day registration will open at 7:00am. Ceremony will begin promptly at 7:45am. 5K Start will be at 8:00am (rain or shine).
There will be a great DJ by Bristol Sounds, a wonderful 5K running/walking course around the Columbia Gateway Drive circle, Mission BBQ (and the Bam Bam Truck), pizza, lots of snacks, and a few fun vendors to visit! Grab your friends and come out!!!
Most importantly, we will have several survivors speaking prior to the race! If you have a few hours on the 19th (7:30a to 10:30a), please consider coming to walk, run, volunteer (see volunteer sign-up below) or just come out to hear the heartwarming speakers (we have another new speaker this year). Our current speakers will be Erika Brannock (Boston Marathon Survivor), Hector Hernandez (Oklahoma 1st Responder), Dahlia Morris (Survivor – Mother lost in 9/11 Pentagon), and Rafael Maetos (survivor of BOTH the Pentagon & Navy Yard incidents). If you can’t be there on race day and would like to be a “sleep walker” – go to the registration link and sign up! Teachers/Students/Law Enforcement/Military ALL $20!!
It’s a great cause…please share this link with your family and friends!! Also, we are a 501c3 non-profit and would love to have National Honor Society students (for hour credits), Sorority/Fraternity Community Outreach Service, Church Confirmation (hours), or Boy Scout/Girl Scout Troops to volunteer (for a badge or other volunteer credit).
The course is a paved road, mostly flat, and wheelchair accessible. Strollers are allowed on the course.
Post race awards will be given out.
