So where does your money go???
Your money (after race expenses are deducted) go to support local student running athletes. The De Soto Grand Parade 5k benefits the Bradenton Runners Club student athletic program which awards scholarships to high school seniors and financial aid to students wishing to attend summer running camps. Please visit our website www.bradentonrunnersclub.com for more information. We are 100% non-profit and our races are supported 100% by volunteers.
Following the race, please join us for an additional post-race celebration at Darwin Brewing company for a refreshing craft brew. Darwin Brewing Company is hosting a race after party following the De Soto Grand Parade 5K! Darwin will give all race runners a "Beer for a Bib," just bring your race bib tear off strip to the brewery after the race. (This offer is only applicable on race day.)
