Day of the Dead 5K
UPCOMING DATES AND TIMES
- Saturday, October 28, 2017 8am - 4pm
Once again, we have partnered with the wonderful folks at the Brentwood Boy & Girls Club who continue to do an incredible job of providing after school activities for the Latin American community. This year we have a goal to sponsor 100 kids to run the race through our “Sponsor a little runner” program where $25 dollars can contribute to pay a member’s entry fee. During the last four years we have had over 3,200 runners and have been able to contribute over $73K to the Boys & Girls Club.
This year the race will start at 10:00am, and as usual the race course goes through Oakwood cementery and loop back to Wilmington St. We will have two altars; one at Oakwood cemetery and one on Wilmington Street where people will be able to do offerings of flowers and written messages in memory of their loved ones. There will be an art corner for the kids sponsored by Artspace, face painting by Paint Savvy, the best prices from local businesses, for top runners and best costumes, our famouse dance-off costume contest and Tercer Divisa will be playing life and DJing the event.
