Emily Rose Memorial Run
5K Run/Walk and Kids Sprint

Saturday August 18th, 2012
7:30 p.m. Start

     Calling all students, athletes, runners, walkers, exercisers of all shapes and sizes! As a community let's pull together and celebrate the youthful enthusiasm of Emily Rose Adamczak in a 5K (3.1 mile) event to benefit the Emily Rose Memorial Scholarship Fund & The American Heart Association.

     We are looking for all the area teams to show your support and wear your colors or uniforms. All interested walkers and runners, both competitive or social are invited! How about the few of you that have wondered if you could go that far? Let's make it fun. Let's share in Emily's memory and how she brightened our lives.

     The 5K run/walk will begin at Russell Park on Main St. in Akron at 7:30 p.m. with registration from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. Registration for the event will be $25.00 and Race T-shirts will be guaranteed for the first 300 runners on the day of the race, or while supplies last.  Your registration gives you a challenging, CERTIFIED & TIMED race through the Village of Akron, & picturesque Akron Falls Park; a commemorative t-shirt; and a meal ticket. The Kids Sprint is for children 8 and under that may not want to complete the 5K, but want to participate (free of charge!). Checks can be written to the Emily Rose Memorial Fund.

The race proceeds will benefit the Emily Rose Memorial Scholarship Fund and provide for the purchase of additional AED's for local sports facility fields.

Awards? You bet! Cash awards for the top male and female runners, as well as cash prizes for the top male & female in the Masters Categories. There will be awards for the top male and female runners by the following age groups: 14 years & under; 14-19;20-24; 25-29, and in five year increments up to 75 years!

      Look for registration forms at area businesses and at Russell Park. Call Annette Adamczak at (716) 725-2380 for more information or to volunteer.
