Aside from the fun stuff, your participation supports a great cause. The Pirate 5K Rum Runner will raise funds to treat veterans at Sitrin who do not have adequate health insurance or who prefer community-based providers. Another component of Sitrin’s Military Rehabilitation Program is the Military Civilian Coalition (MCC), which is designed to promote camaraderie, advocacy, educational opportunities and traditional support to civilian life. The program enables veterans and civilians to interact through social and athletic endeavors, such as fly fishing, TRX Suspension Training, therapeutic hand drumming, archery, Paleo cooking classes, wheelchair basketball, and more. Monthly gatherings take place at various locations in the community.
The race cost is $20 until May 31st and then $25 from June 1st – July 21st. You will be able to register the morning of the 5K, but you will not receive a free t-shirt. Children 5 and under are free and do not require registration.
