Amity High School senior Lillian Zhang welcomes everyone to a new local road race for an important cause.
“My club and I are hosting the Woodbridge Be The Match 5K on the Woodbridge Green to raise funds for Be The Match, an organization that provides life saving bone marrow transplants for cancer patients,” Zhang said. “It’s a wonderful community event for all ages and fitness levels.”
The deadline for Early Bird registration ends Friday, March 31. Pre-registered runners receive free T-shirts and a $2 coupon to Bruegger’s Bagels. Top runners also receive awards.
The event includes a post race party with food, awards, and a raffle.
We’re also having a bone marrow drive and a raffle with gift cards to Denali, Red Barn, Fleet Feet Sports, and signed posters from NY Giants and Boston Red Sox.
Sponsors include: Laticrete, Denali, Woodbridge Running Company, Chabaso Bakery, Crest Lincoln of Woodbridge, Grimaldi’s, APM Sports Chiropractic, ELITE Sports Medicine, Whole Foods, and Generation UCan.
