Start your engines, or just prepare for a leisurely walk; whatever your speed it’s all for a great cause. The Forgotten 5K, 1 Mile Mosey, and Unforgettable Costume Contest is coming to Mechanicsburg September 17th! The event will take place at the West Shore Evangelical Free Church, and all proceeds benefit Forgotten Voices, a Dillsburg based nonprofit focused on helping children orphaned by AIDS in Zimbabwe and Zambia.
This is the first year of this event, so there are some fantastic incentives to participate. For one, any runner or walker who wears a costume will automatically get entered into a random drawing for a brand new iPad2 – not too shabby. And there are lots of other prizes as well, including hand carved decorative pieces from the communities that Forgotten Voices serves in Africa. The race kicks off at 9am, and any other detail you might want to know can be found at Forgotten5K.org. You can also see if you have any facebook friends attending by checking out their event page.
Personally, I plan to make an appearance with THE hottest costume possible, quite literally. Anyone have a good costume suggestion for the 5K or 1 Mile Mosey?
