The 6 w's of the pumpkin pacer 5k

  1. 1. Read on 
  2. 2. Any one, anywhere. You! Yes, even you. This is non competitive so it’s perfect for those of you who have a race on your bucket list or those hard core racers who just love to run. vs
  3. 3.  Well –it’s a race-you know that already, right?  It’s non-competitive- go at your own pace, walk, run, crawl  It’s Chip-timed. Although non-competitive, it’s great to have a sense of where you are at so you can move forward from there-i.e hmm, ok I know my next race will be faster or yuck-I’m never racing again.
  4. 4. Well we think physical activity is important And we certainly think eating is important Which is why we devised this fundraiser to help the Hantsport and Area Food bank. Not everyone has food to eat on a regular basis. I’ll bet someone YOU know does not have enough food to eat on a regular basis-although it may not seem evident to you . $5 from every registration goes to our food bank plus we are reimbursing the food bank ~ their volunteers are providing breakfast on race day.
  5. 5. In March 2013 • 21,760 Nova Scotians were assisted by food banks. • Meal programs and soup kitchens collectively served 154,330 meals and 18,724 snacks during the same month • It’s no longer only the homeless and those on Social Assistance that need our help- it’s the working poor.
