There is still time to register for the second annual 5K Run, Waddle and Roll.

The event will take place this Saturday, April 19, at the Tri-County Community Senior Center, 800 W. Union St., beginning at 8 a.m.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the senior center.

Last year, some 90 people participated, raising $2,000.

The race starts at the senior center and continues through town to the finish line at the senior center where participants will be treated to fruit, bagels and various drinks.

There also will be a one-mile walk for participants who would rather walk than run.

An awards ceremony will follow in the senior center.

Cost to participate is $25 for adults and $20 for youth under 18.

Local citizens and businesses are asked to sponsor the event with donations, prizes with company name or logo, or contest or raffle under a company’s name.

Awards will be given in the following categories: Male and female first-place to fifth-place by age: 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-80, 81 and over.

For safety, no strollers, pets, roller blades or bicycles will be allowed in the race area.

The run will take place rain or shine with no refunds if the event is rained out.

Sponsors will be recognized with signs and vendor booths during the event.

The Tri-County Community Senior Center is dedicated to providing the highest quality recreational, social and supportive services to mature adults, according to Jean Guffey, senior center administrator.

“With events like the 5K, the senior center will be recognized as a model center for excellence in the delivery of services to mature adults and will be ever committed to meeting the needs of those it serves,” Guffey said.

For more information, or to register, people may call the senior center at 636-257-6264.
