Safe Shelter holding first run, hop
Safe Shelter, Jamestown, has announced it will hold the first Rabbit Run & Bunny Hop fun run. Proceeds from the March 31 event, expected to be an annual event, will help build and provide continued support for Mary’s Place at Safe Shelter. Mary’s Place will provide short-term housing for victims of domestic violence and their children until they can obtain safe and affordable housing of their own.
The Rabbit Run & Bunny Hop fun run will start at 9 a.m. at Harold Newman Arena on the University of Jamestown Campus. There will be a 5K Rabbit Run for the more serious runners and walkers with prizes for the first three finishers. The family fun 3K Bunny Hop will wind through the UJ campus and will include sponsored booths with goodies for the kids. Costumes are encouraged.
Safe Shelter is currently accepting event sponsorships and race registrations. The cost to enter the event is $25 for adults and $5 for kids. Adults get a T-shirt with their registration. For more information, contact Safe Shelter at 251-2301.
