On Saturday, May 16, 2015, Univera Serve First will host an inaugural 5K Run/Walk and Kids Fun Run benefiting the children and families served by FISH Food Banks of Pierce County.
Have your photo taken with Blitz, the official mascot of the Seattle Seahawks! Blitz does his part to make sure Seahawks games are the loudest and most exciting in the NFL, and will be the life of the party.
The race begins at 9:00 a.m. at Owens Beach at Pt. Defiance Park in Tacoma. Registration and runner packet pickup takes place from 7:30 – 8:30 a.m. This is a timed race, ensuring fast and accurate results for runners seeking to qualify for other races. Please preregister at: www.tandhtiming.com/events/univera-5k-tacoma/. Registration is available the day of the event; t-shirts are first-come, first-serve.
Kids are welcome to join in the fun! A 100 yard dash for children six and under, and a half mile dash for children 12 and under, will be held immediately following the 5K.
All event proceeds benefit FISH Food Banks of Pierce County, the oldest and largest food bank network in the county. FISH’s seven food banks and award-winning mobile food bank served 538,295 client visits in 2014, directly impacting the lives of nearly 80,000 families. 40% of FISH customers are children aged 18 and younger.
