Inaugural Winter Breeze 5K

Inaugural Winter Breeze 5K

Last years event was very successful with more than 70 participants.

This year, we hope to exceed the  $6,000 that was raised, which benefited our programs for adults of all ages at the center.

The overall winners were Jason Schaffer with a time of 6:13 males, followed by Carol Mosher at 8:13 for females.

The participants’ ages ranged from 8 to 74 years old!

Major race sponsors were Sporting Arms, Golden Pantry, and Koons Environmental.  De Palma's Cafe, Main Street Garage, and Medical Rehab Systems gave additional support not to mention all the rest of the sponsors.

More than 20 individuals volunteered at the run and did a great job making sure everything went smoothly. Many of our first responders were there to protect the runners.

We thank all of you for a  successful Inaugural Winterville  Breeze 5K Run and encourage you to participate in our second run.  Your generous sponsorships & support help to provide a fun and exciting event for our community as well as, support our Center.
