On Saturday, March 25th at 11:00am, Langcliffe Presbyterian Church is hosting its annual Easter Egg Hunt 5k for the community. This year we'll offer a (new) 3.1 mile course and a 1 mile fun run/walk. The 5k course takes you around Avoca, collecting Easter eggs along the course. At the end of the race, open the eggs to see how much time gets taken off of your finish! There will be prizes for different categories and a pasta lunch afterwards (beginning at 12) that is open to the public. Our goal is to raise funds for the Avoca Fire Department (www.avocafire.net) and Ruth's Place (www.ruthsplace.com), a women's shelter in Wilkes-Barre; all proceeds will go to these organizations.
Registration is $20 until March 11th, when it increases to $25. Registration on the day of the race is also available for $30. Registration includes a T-shirt and a pasta lunch! If you or your friends and family would like to come just for lunch, tickets are available for $5 We are also looking for volunteers and race sponsors!
