On Your Mark! Get Set! Go!

Mark the date on your calendar, Sunday, September 23, 2012 at 10 am for the 3rd Annual 5K Run/Walk to benefit Lorraine’s Soup Kitchen and Pantry. The beautiful Chicopee Memorial State Park will once again host this wonderful event ($20 entry fee). Cash prizes will be awarded to the 1st and 2nd place finishers for both male and female runners.

This event is one of the main fund raisers for the Soup Kitchen and Pantry. Lorraine’s is thankful for the many businesses and individuals who continue to show their support by making a sponsor donation. If you have not already, please show your support by becoming a Trail Sign Sponsor. For a donation of $100, you get one complimentary event entry and a 1′ x 2′ sign at the event.

In order to make the day successful, many local businesses and individuals have already come on board by helping to sponsor the event.  A special thank you to Sullivan Metals Company, Inc. as Presenting Sponsor; Lucky Strike Restaurant and Bay State Sprinkler Company as Bib Sponsors; The Beavers, BJ’s Wholesale Club and Ideal Insurance Inc. as Food Sponsors.  We would also like to mention our current Trail Sign Sponsors; Polish National Credit Union, Sweeney Transportation, O’Connell Oil Associates, Cavalier Restaurant, Baskin’s Inc., Mimi’s, Chuck and Joan Desmarais, ABM Transmission, St. Pierre-Phaneuf Funeral Chapels and Sweeney Transportation.  The sponsors will be recognized during the event and in any media pertinent to their sponsorship level.

While nearly 175 entrants enjoyed the run last year, Lorraine’s is expecting to see nearly 200 for this year.

Get Set to have a great day outside with fellow supporters of Lorraine’s. After you have crossed the finish line, relax and enjoy a picnic lunch, beverages, listen to the music and even have some ice cream for dessert!

Go! And support Lorraine’s Soup Kitchen and Pantry in its mission to eliminate hunger in Chicopee.

Remember, Sunday, September 23, 2012 at Chicopee Memorial State Park off Burnett Road in Chicopee. Registration is $20 and begins at 9:00 am and the Race begins at 10:00 am. Admission to the Park is free.

Help Lorraine’s Soup Kitchen and Pantry meet the increasing demands while facing cuts in federal and state funding sources.  Ninety cents of every dollar donated goes to feeding the hungry.  Unlike some charities with high management costs, you can trust that more of your donation goes to those most in need during tighter economic times.
