December 21, 2015 (Sarasota, Fla.) – Achieva Credit Union announces its second-annual ‘Run for GOOD’ fundraiser event will be held on Saturday, January 30, 2016, from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. at Payne Park in Sarasota.
The family-friendly event will feature a 5K run/walk, a half-mile kids’ run and half-mile dog walk. All proceeds from the event will benefit local schools in Sarasota in the form of classroom grants awarded by the Achieva Foundation, a 501(c)(3) corporation and administered through the Education Foundation of Sarasota County.
Last year’s inaugural event was a huge success, attracting more than 200 runners. Achieva is proud to be a presenting sponsor of the Education Foundation of Sarasota County’s classroom grant program, funding to date nearly $100,000 in educational grants.
‘Run for GOOD’ is open to all ages and offers fun for the whole family. In addition to the walking and running events, there will be a doggie costume contest with a great prize for the best-dressed furry friend. The event will also feature music, face painting, bounce house and a post-race pancake food truck breakfast, provided free for participants.
Registration is now open and information is available at www.achievarunforgood.com. There is a $5 registration discount for all Manasota Track Club members. All participants will receive a commemorative event shirt and all finishers of the Kids Run will receive a finisher’s medal.
Awards will be given to the top male and female finishers overall as well as Master (age 40 & over), Grand Master (age 50 & over), Senior Master (age 60 & over) and Veteran Master (age 70 & over).
