As hundreds of runners take to the streets for the Riverwalk Run 5K, they will be helping scores of children participate in team sports for months to come.The 7th annual Riverwalk Run 5K is set for the evening of Oct. 3 in downtown Milton.
The run benefits the youth sports programs at the Milton Community Center. It allows us to sponsor kids on sports teams including baseball, basketball, cheerleading and football. Proceeds from the 5K also allow the center to continue to provide free, family-friendly events for the local community.
The 5K traverses downtown Milton, including sections of the Blackwater River State Heritage Trail and the Riverwalk, which fronts the Blackwater River. And unlike most runs, the event begins at 5 p.m.
Registration is available online at www.runsignup.com through Sept. 25.
