FJ3_4054

The annual Tim Kennard 10-Mile River Run and 5K Run-Walk, to raise money for children and animals in need, is set for March 6.

In honor of Kennard, who died in 2004 from kidney cancer when he 48, and the father of a 7-year-old son, the annual event features a 10-mile road run and 5K road run.

This year, proceeds will go to Coastal Hospice, for pediatric cases and programs for grieving children who have lost a sibling or a parent to cancer.

Also benefitting will be Salisbury Horizons Student Enrichment Program, which provides support, education and hope to children from economically disadvantaged families; Coalition of Caring, for animals in need; and VSCOA PAWS, a program to train disabled, homeless veterans to train homeless rescue dogs to become service dogs.

The opening ceremony will be at 8:30 a.m. and the 10-Mile River Run, 10-Mile Relay and 5K will begin at 9.

At 9:05 a.m., the 5K Non-Competitive Walk will start. It will allow baby joggers and well-behaved canines and begin five minutes after the competitive events.

Events will begin and end at Salisbury University. Runners will wind through neighborhoods surrounding the university and Wicomico River. Those in the relay will take the same course. Cash awards will be given.

Afterward, there will be a post-race party and awards ceremony.

All runners must be registered by March 2. See info@timkennard.org.
