5K This Weekend To Benefit Wounded Warriors
The Chick-fil-A at Pasadena Crossroads is sponsoring the event on Oct. 13 at the B&A Trail at Jumpers Hole Road that will include live music, vendors and more.
There's still time to register for a 5K race this weekend to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project and there will be lots to do at the Saturday event if you're not a runner.
The race, which starts at 8 a.m. Saturday at the B&A Trail at Jumpers Hole Road, is sponsored by the Chick-fil-A restaurant at Pasadena Crossroads. Chick-fil-A is partnering with the local Pasadena Boy Scouts, Coca-Cola, Blue Star Families and the Ihoot Foundation to hold this event, according to a press release.
Online registration is $30 for the 5K through Active.com and is open through 11:59 p.m. Thursday. All proceeds will go to the Wounded Warrior Project. Participants receive a T-shirt and gift bag with every registration. Winners with the best overall time will be announced for each age category.
“We are delighted to sponsor this 5K race in honor of those who have served, are currently serving and will serve in our country’s military,” said franchise Operator Patrick Cozadd in a press release. “We hope the members of the armed forces in our community will enjoy this small token of our appreciation for all that they do.”
If you're not a runner but still want to support the event, there will be additional activities: live music, vendors and keynote speaker Charles Eggleston, a former Army staff sergeant who was wounded in Iraq.
