From Joe Sosa:

Hello friends and running partners,

I wanted to let everyone know about the Ophelia Project Run/Walk taking place next Saturday, August 16 @ 6pm. The run/walk will include both a competitive 5k run and a fun 2 mile walk.

This event will be taking place on the Racine Lakefront at North Beach. I will include links to both the home page of the event and an online registration site. The courses will run around the lakefront on mostly roads/pathways in the surrounding area, however a portion of the 5k run will be on the beach itself which should make for a unique experience.

The Ophelia Project is an organization that promotes healthy peer relationships in schools
("anti-bullying") and has a chapter in Southeast Wisconsin.

Many local downtown businesses have donated prizes for the event that will be raffled off following the completion of the run/walk. A local artist will be making the award medals.

This is a family event! Invite the little ones, the non-runners and the grandparents! There
also will be post race party at the North Beach Oasis.

The registration cost is $20 before August 10 and $25 after for individuals. There are also family and team discounts.

Come out and support a new late summer event in Racine!
