“Most people have a charity that they help support, so this year, in addition to raising money to complete Runway Park at the Greenville Downtown Airport, we have added a new feature to our race: A charity challenge,” said Joe Lanahan, Take Flight 5K Race Director. “People can sign up without being on a charity team, as they always have, this is just a new race feature.”
Want to take the Charity Challenge? Register a team of four runners (at least one must be female) to participate in Take Flight 5k. When folks register for the race they will be asked to pick a charity team.
Encourage them to pick yours and $1 from each runner will go to your non-profit group. Also, the team that has the fastest combined time for its top three runners will earn an additional $250 for its charity and the team that signs up the most participants will earn an additional $250 for its charity.
Reserve your team now by emailing LaraLKaufmann@gmail.com for a team registration form. Once received, this information will be added to the online registration site so each of the team’s runners and all their supporters can select the charity’s team.
