Cassidy Cares FREE 5K Fun Run – October 28, 2017

Join us on Saturday, October 28 to celebrate and honor the life of Cassidy Stinton and give back to the organization that she loved so dearly.

A precious life was taken way too soon. Cassidy Stinton was only 19 when she lost her life in a tragic accident in 2015. She was a beautiful, energetic young woman who could brighten anyone’s day. She loved being with friends and family. Cassidy was an exceptional athlete and a caring person. We want to help carry on her memory by donating toys to the Kinder Garden, an early learning childcare facility, in Easton, MD.

And what’s an October 5k without costumes? Come celebrate Cassidy’s memory by dressing up in your favorite costume!! Before we run, we will have a COSTUME CONTEST with awards for the best overall costume!

So come on out for our Free 5k series and bring an unwrapped toy, that we can pass along to our friends at The Kinder Garden (http://www.kindergardensite.com/). This will be one of our PREDICTED 5ks (as usual) so come on out, guess your finish time, and if you are within 10 seconds, you can win ANOTHER prize!!!!

ONLINE REGISTRATION AVAILABLE HERE

Stay tuned for special promotions that we will be doing to remember Cassidy, as we build this race in her memory!

As usual, on-site registration and bib pick up will begin at 7:30am at the shop. The race will begin at 9am. Please remember to park at St. Michaels Elementary School then make the short walk to the shop for the race start. We hope to see you on the 28th!

Project Purple FREE 5K Fun Run – Sept. 10, 2017

We hope you will plan to join us for our September installment in our FREE 5K Fun Run series as we join the effort to raise awareness of substance abuse in Talbot County.  For this event, taking place on Sunday September 10, 2017, we are partnering with the Talbot Goes Purple community.

Talbot Goes Purple is a substance abuse awareness program that will engage our community and youth to stand against substance abuse.

The project is based upon THP Project Purple, an initiative of The Herren Project, a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation established by former NBA basketball player, Chris Herren, that assists individuals and families struggling with addiction. 

Talbot Goes Purple is an initiative from Talbot County Sheriff’s Office and Tidewater Rotary, in partnership with Talbot County Public Schools and Mid-Shore Community Foundation. 

More information on THP Project Purple is available at www.thpprojectpurple.org.

In keeping with our FREE events, we do not ask for monetary donations, but rather encourage all participants to bring an item to donate to help create ‘blessing bags’ that will be provided to those individuals currently struggling with substance abuse in our community.  Items to consider include:

-Chapstick
-Facial Wipes
-Moisturizer
-Comb
-Toothbrush
-Toothpaste
-Q-Tips
-Multipurpose Wipes
-Compact First Aid Kit
-EmergenC Packets (when people start to feel sick)
-Hand Warmers
-Warm Socks
-Prepaid Phone Cards

For more information about the Talbot Goes Purple initiative and for other ways to contribute to the effort, please visit https://www.talbotgoespurple.org/

Online registration for the 5K is open and can be found HERE.

As always, the race will begin at 9:00am, with on-site registration and bib pickup available beginning at 7:30am here at the shop.  We will have a brief race meeting at 8:45am.

Please plan to park at St. Michaels Elementary School, then make the short walk down to the shop for the race start.  If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to send us an email info@tricycleandrun.com!
