Good Afternoon Bay Head 5kers,
We are looking forward to seeing you all on May 18th this year to celebrate the 10th Annual Bay Head 5k Memory Run, hosted by The Kate Shea Foundation. Registration is now open! Please visit www.bayhead5k.com to register and see all the information for this years run/walk.
We are pleased to announce that we will be offering a tent at our event this year to register to become a bone marrow donor. This is a simple swab process inside of your mouth that gets put into a national registry. As a bone marrow donor myself I can tell you there is no better feeling than getting the call to say you are a match to someone in need. Please take time to swing by the tent and register to help fight Leukemia and Lymphoma! More details will follow on this great addition to The Bay Head5k Memory Run.
Again, I would like anyone who is interested in sharing a thought, memory or a short story about how they have been affected by a loved one fighting any form of Cancer, to please reach out to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org With your permission I would like to share these stories with our participants to honor as many as possible. We want this event to be about you and your loved ones, just as much as we want it to be in memory of our sister, daughter and friend Kate Shea.
There are 3 ways to register this year;
1) As a single runner/walker
2) You can create a team to honor someone who has been affected in any way, by any disease
3) You can join an existing team
There is also an option to purchase a ticket for the after party which will be held at Martell's Tiki bar in Point Pleasant Beach from 12pm to 5pm. This has become the party to kick off summer and is an excellent family event that is friendly for all ages. There will be a beach BBQ, 2 hour open bar, DJ , prizes and much more!
We started our team concept last year and it was a tremendous success! What better way to honor a loved one than to run/walk with your family and friends as a team, raising both funds, and awareness, to fight all forms of cancer. Here's how it works,
We look forward to throwing another amazing event for you this year. See you on May 18th!
Each team names their team whatever they choose
Each team will be a minimum of 5 members
Each member pays their $25.00 entrance fee and then pledges to raise a minimum of 75.00 more
We have made the process very simple this year. You can invite friends to both join or donate to your team, via all social media when registering. i.e.. Facebook, Twitter, email
Each team will be listed on our race shirts
The top 3 teams in fundraising will also receive prizes for their efforts
