Description

Race Description/Details:
In a huge community-wide effort to help support the Eastern Pregnancy Information Clinic, affectionately known as the EPIC Center, we are hosting our SECOND 5k and 1 Mile Walk 4 Life! Join us in working off those extra holiday pounds by running and/or walking with us!!!
You will have the opportunity to run/walk the 5k OR walk one mile–either way, your participation is evidence of your support! We can all agree that supporting L.I.F.E (Loving Individuals For Eternity!) is a worthy cause.

Why this is a good cause:
These funds will help the center continue to provide free pregnancy testing, limited ultrasound, and pregnancy support services to the young women and men in our community who find themselves facing an unplanned pregnancy. We offer prenatal and parenting classes in exchange for free baby supplies. We have the pleasure of serving Craven, Greene, Lenoir, Jones, and Pamlico Counties. Ultimately we're here to help families thrive, BUT we could not do this without YOU, YOUR prayers, and YOUR support!


Registration Fees/Dates/Categories:
5K (INCLUDES ONE FREE T-SHIRT*)
• EARLY BIRD: Now through April 1st  – $30
• Late Registration*: April 2nd through race day – $35
*No free T-shirt after these dates

1 Mile Walk For Life - To register please contact the New Bern office at 252-638-4673. To enter to win the $500 CASH PRIZE giveaway & several other yummy-practical prizes, you'll need to raise sponsorship for your walk. Here's what you do:

Your sponsors have the option to let you collect their money, pledge online right here on this site by clicking the 'DONATE NOW' tab in the upper right-hand corner (they will have to fill out their own info AND state YOUR name--the name of the person they are sponsoring), or be billed by the center.
  2. Bring your completed pledge form(s) & any monies collected on race day. Walk up to the 'WALKERS' side of the registration table and let them know you're submitting your sponsorship pledge form.
  3. Bring the whole family--RAIN or SHINE and get ready to walk your mile in support of what we do here at the EPIC Center! Thank you in advance for your time and effort, and may the best man, woman, or child win!
