MILTON-FREEWATER - Saager's Shoe Shop is organizing the second annual Pioneer 5K Fun Run & Walk on June 12.
All proceeds from the event go to the Mac-Hi Athletic Department to help pay for equipment, travel, etc. Last year, 57 runners from the Northwest registered for the race and $710 was donated.
This year, the event hopes to increase the donation by attracting more runners to this event by awarding prizes in a drawing after the race and to the winners of each age bracket and the best race time overall. All runners will also receive a T-shirt, which features the race logo as well as all sponsors' names or logos.
All sponsors will be listed on Saager's Web site, www.Saagershoeshop.com, the store's Facebook page and entry form, which is distributed in Milton Freewater, Walla Walla and the Northwest.
Areas of sponsorship include for trophies, ribbons and prize merchandise, gifts for drawings, T-shirts, and refreshments.
