October 19 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm

Run for Fun…Race for a Cause! Please join us for the Post Office Cafe’s 28th Annual 5k Run & 1K Fun Run!

A pre-race party kicks off the festivities Friday Night, October 18th from 4:00pm-8:00pm. Runners can pick up their T-Shirts and Race Numbers and enjoy a complimentary buffet and drink!

Same day race registration begins 8:00am on Saturday, October 19. The 1K fun run starts at 9:30am. The 5K starts at 10:00am.

The event is in memory of Mark Lessing, Jr. and his sister Casey Lessing. Both have lost their battle to Sanfilippo Syndrome. MPS and related diseases are genetic disorders that affect major organs in the body, including the respiratory system, heart, bones, and nervous system. Affecting mostly children, it is caused by the body’s inability to produce certain enzymes. There are hundreds of children around the country waiting for a treatment and eventually a cure for these rare, progressive, and deadly diseases.
