On May 26th, 2012, we are having our 1st annual Someone Special Like Me 5K. The race will benefit “Someone Special Like Me”,a nonprofit organization created to provide appropriate recreational activity for children with special needs. All proceeds will be used to build a Fun Center that will serve all children with special needs from birth to 17. The 5K is a run and a walk, so runners and walkers of all skill levels are invited to take part in the event.
