Malvern locals to get running boots on

August 8, 2012 by  

The 22nd ‘Run for your Life’ will take place at the Great Valley Corporate Center on September 18 beginning at 6:00 pm. Fees to take part are $15 in advance or $20 on the day of the run. Proceeds go to the Community Volunteers in Medicine and the East Whiteland Volunteer Fire Association.

Participants can either run or walk the 5K route. Awards will be given out for top individual, top three male finishers, top three female finishers, top three males in each age group, top three females in each age group, and the top three teams. There will be eight age group categories, the youngest group being 13 and under and the oldest group being 70 and over. Basically, anyone capable of mobility can take part in this fundraising event.

Local businesses could possibly form teams for the event as a way to help out their community. It could be a company-wide effort both to help out the community and to promote a healthier workplace. There is still time for people who wish to participate to get in good enough shape to take part. Businesses could provide incentives for their employees to take part in the run or walk by way of a gift card or a certificate of completion. Malvern printing companies could easily provide a certificate that is suitable for framing. The certificate caould then be awarded to employees who finish top in the company in their age group or the person who finishes first out of all company employees.
