The proceeds of this event will allow them to expand their scholarship program to serve more students in Putnam County.

All participants of the 5K Run/Walk will qualify for a drawing for a men's and women's pair of Brooks Running shoes, a men's and women's Russell Athletic Jogging Suit and a Russell Athletic Sports bag.
