The 2011 iteration of the race raised $40,000 for Make-A-Wish, which allows children with life-threatening illnesses to see their wishes come true. The money raised in last year's race went towards granting the wishes of six children in the local area.
Registration is open now for the 2012 race. Before Sept. 28, registration fees will be $20 for the untimed 5K and $25 for the timed 5K. After the 28th, the fees will increase to $25 and $35, respectively. Children from six to twelve years old are $10, and children under five get in free.
