It is $25 for adults and $15 for students under 17 to register for the 5K. To register a child 10 or younger for the Kids’ Dash it will cost $15. It’s also possible to support the cause by purchasing an event t-shirt for $15.

The 5K will begin at 7:30 a.m., and registration and packet pickup begin at 6:30 a.m. e Kids’ Dash begins at 8:45 a.m.
