Norman Bird Sanctuary will host its 10th Annual 5K Run/Walk in honor of David Ley’s, Jr. on Saturday, June 18th 2016.
A Father’s Day Weekend tradition for many, this will be the perfect family activity where participants will run, walk, or jog past scenic vistas of field, ridge and beach while the birds cheer everyone on! This event is USATF sanctioned.
Kids will join the fun by registering for the Frosty Freez Kids Run. After the race all are welcome back at the Sanctuary for music by DJ Butch, refreshments and awards.
Adult registration $25/$30 after June 1st. Kids Run registration $5. Registration available online at www.normanbirdsanctuary.org.
All proceeds support the Norman Bird Sanctuary and its mission of land and wildlife conservation, and environmental education.
