The Worcester County Developmental Center, with OC TriRunning Sports, will present the Running for a Brighter Future event on Saturday, Jan. 5, 2013. The event will include a 10K race and 1-mile fun run/walk, which will both begin and end at the WCDC building at 8545 Newark Road in Newark, Md.
OC TriRunning Sports designed the course and will be responsible for timing race participants.
The cost to participate is $35 for those who register before Dec. 20, and $40 for anyone who registers after that date. Racers will be provided a T-shirt, while supplies last, and an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet post-race. If the runners have family or friends cheering them on, they may join in on the buffet for a $10.
To pre-register, visit www.octrirunning.com. Participants may register on race day, beginning at 8 a.m.; the race will begin at 9 a.m.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Worcester County Developmental Center clients. WCDC provides employment opportunities, skills of daily living training, residential services and community based supports for adults who live with an intellectual disability in Worcester, Somerset and Wicomico counties. WCDC enables its clients to become productive, responsible and participating members of their community by helping them achieve their highest level of economic and social independence.
The run is sponsored by the Dough Roller, Jolly Roger at the Pier, Apple Drugs, the Bank of Ocean City, DeNovo’s Trattoria, Avery Hall Insurance Group and Pepsi Bottling Ventures.
