Reasons to Run 5K Run/Walk
Bond Park, Cary, NC
This is a family event for runners and walkers.

The goal of this 5k is to raise money to assist with the purchase of the land and the initial building phase. Check-in will take place at the Kiwanis Shelter at Bond Park in Cary. The 5k is on a certified course traversing various trails. The race will NOT be timed but prizes will be awarded for the top 5 male and top 5 female finishers. There will be a shorter course for children and even a bounce house. Check-in will begin at 7:30am and the race will start at 8:30am. See more at: www.7billionreasons.org
