West Ashley, SC… Get ready to walk, run or roll at the 13th Annual Avondale 5K Run + Walk for Special Kids happening Saturday, October 8th benefiting The Charles Webb Center. Last year’s race brought in nearly 500 participants and raised nearly $50,000 for the CWC. With the community’s help, we will top that this year, with a goal of $75,000! The Avondale 5K has become one of the community’s most anticipated annual events and is the single largest fundraiser for Charles Webb.
Starting on Tall Oak Drive near Triangle Char and Bar (828 Savannah Highway), Avondale 5K runners and walkers will make their way through the lovely streets of the Avondale neighborhood and onto the new bike path in West Ashley. Strollers and dogs are welcome! The After Race Party starts as soon as participants cross the finish line. Triangle Char and Bar is hosting the party complete with music, all-inclusive food and drinks. Awards and prizes will be given at the After Party.
This year’s Presenting Sponsor is the Michael T. and Marjorie V. Gasparick Foundation. All proceeds from the Avondale 5K directly benefit the Charles Webb Center, a non-profit, day care center that serves children from age 6 weeks to 10 years old who have developmental disabilities and special needs. The Center is under the umbrella of the Disabilities Foundation of Charleston County, and is located at 1611 Evergreen Street, right off Savannah Highway. To learn more about CWC, visit www.charleswebbcenter.com.
Runners and walkers have the option to create and name their own teams in an additional effort to raise funds. For the team with the highest amount of money raised, Triangle will throw a private party for 25 people complete with drinks and food!
The top winner will have the honor of their name being engraved on the prestigious “Stevie Award”, named after the late Stephen Condon in whose memory the race was founded. All attendees and participants are asked to please park in designated parking spaces and NOT on the race course. Please visit www.avondale5k.com for a complete list of this year’s sponsors or to find out how you can take part!
