Please join us as a walker or runner this Saturday, October 7 for the 5K Color Fun/Walk! ALL PROCEEDS will be donated to the Columbus County Special Olympics.

The Columbus County Special Olympics is an organization that operates solely on donations. I encourage you to donate to the Columbus County Special Olympics to keep smiles on the faces of our “everyday champions”. For donation specifics, please contact Ms. Tammy Creech Whitlow at 910-640-1153 or whitlow@homecaremgmt.org.

The fund raising 5K event will begin and end in the Ritz Plaza located across from the Todd House. Registration begins at 7 a.m. with the race set to begin at 8 a.m. Pre-registration is preferred; however, you may register on race day.

First, Second, and Third Place Medals will be awarded to the Overall male and female winners. The 5K entry fee is $15 with an event T-shirt (as available, first come first serve) and $10 without a T-shirt.

A special thank you to the 5K event sponsors, First Bank of Tabor City and Tabor City Medicine Mart. Sponsors like these two businesses make our numerous events possible.
