The Inaugural Greene Turtle Lewes 5K Walk/Run to benefit The Wellness Community-Delaware (TWC-D) is scheduled for Sunday, August 23, 2009. Registration begins at 7:15 with the race starting at 8:15 am. The event will commence at the Greene Turtle Restaurant and Sports Bar located at The Villages at Five Points in Lewes. Walkers and runners will proceed along a fast, flat course within the Five Points residential neighborhoods. Tee shirts will be provided and a complimentary post race party featuring music, beer and refreshments will be held at the Greene Turtle.
As a symbolic gesture of remembrance, red tribute balloons will line the pathway along the course. Those wishing to honor a cancer survivor, remember a loved one who lost their battle with the disease or to celebrate their own survival can purchase the balloons for $10.00 each. For walkers and runners who want to participate in the 5K, a tribute balloon dedicated to the person of your choice is included with each $25.00 registration completed at www.wellnessdelaware.org or by calling TWC-D at 645-9150.
The Wellness Community also has limited T-shirt sponsorships available for the 5K. Sponsors will have their logo placed on the t-shirts, on the race websites, signage on the course, and five complimentary race entries.
