CMS 5K Walk/Run To Be Held On Sunday

April 26, 2013

Sunday’s [Apr 28] 5K event will have a specific ‘run and roll’ category with prizes for children on bikes, children in strollers, persons pushing strollers and any other self-powered mode of transportation.

One child participating is still deciding if he will ride a bike, rollerblade or bring his skateboard. The 6-year-old boy said, “Last year I was the first kid who finished, I rode my bike and I was just trying to keep up with my dad, who was running.”

The CMS 5K event is open to all and has been mapped out on a relatively flat course to accommodate all ages and participants on wheels. There are competitive categories also; the walk and run competition is being timed and race numbers will be issued on the day to accommodate late entrants, who may sign up on that morning.

The Clara Mohammed School [CMS], a non-profit organisation, registered Bermuda charity. CMS has organised this event at minimal cost to ensure the proceeds can benefit its intended recipients. Part proceeds will be distributed to Meals on Wheels and the Women’s Resource Center, with the majority of the proceeds going to purchase educational materials for the students.

Volunteers will be assisting CMS with the event. Participants in all categories will be receiving refreshments and participation gifts donated from variety of sponsors.┬áIf individuals or organisations would like to volunteer, participate, or donate they can contact the organisers via the Centre of Philanthropy website’s event page or through the online registration page.

The 5K Walk/Run will be held this coming Sunday [Apr 28] at Bernard Park starting at 8:30am.
