2010 SABA 5k
The Second Annual SABA 5k, to be held on Sunday, October 10, 2010. The SABA 5k event includes a 5k run (walkers are welcome also) and a 1 mile fun run/walk. The course travels through our neighborhood, starting and ending at Normandy Park. Much of the course is on the SEPTA bus path. No need to worry about the bus. The event is being held on a Sunday and the local bus route does not operate on Sundays. This event was a lot of fun for everyone last year and it promises to be even better this year.
The proceeds from this event will support SABA's neighborhood events and community outreach. Also, this year a portion of the proceeds with be donated to the Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience. This donation is being made to honor the memory of Bill Davis, a long-time neighbor and SABA volunteer who lost his battle with brain tumors in 2009. He had received treatment and support through JHN.
Early registration (before 10/1/10) is $15 per person, $40 per family of 3, or $50 per family of 4+.
The first 150 registered participants get an event t-shirt.
Prizes awarded to top male and female finishers. Medals awarded to top three male and female finishers in all age groups.
Sponsorship opportunities are available for this event. For only $75, your company logo will be displayed on the event t-shirt. For $25, you can have your company name, individual or family name, or a one-line dedication listed on the t-shirt.
