The 7th Annual Run Lucky 5k and Mission Mile Fun Run is scheduled for Sunday, March 12, 2017. Run Lucky is hosted by Friends of LLS. All net proceeds from this event will benefit The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (www.lls.org).
Don’t care for running but still want to support the cause without interrupting afternoon nap time? Sign up for the Snooze Lucky, and you’ll still get the cotton blend tech shirt (first 1200 people to sign up only) and the satisfaction of helping out a worthy cause! Snoozers must pick up their shirt at the early packet pick up or at the packet pick-up on race day.
What’s better than participating in Run Lucky 5k?! Participating in Run Lucky with a TEAM! We have team registration available this year. A team can consist of two or more people. All teams will have the option to raise money for a great cause too – our race beneficiary, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Raising funds is totally optional, however teams that raise $500 or more by March 1 will receive a team tent at the start line. We’ll also have two trophies to give out – one for the team that raises the most money for the cause and one for the team with the largest amount of people.
