2015 Open Registration
We cordially invite you to participate in the 3rd Annual 5K Run/ 1-Mile walk for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) on Saturday, June 6th 2015 at 8 am. We had such a great turnout years past and want to continue our effort in raising money for research to fight this disease that effects so many families. This year, in addition, we will be sponsoring gym memberships to the MS Gym in Omaha. Also, we are putting money towards helping make homes in the Lincoln area handicap accessible for those with MS.
Online registration is open until Sunday, May 23rd at the cost of $20 per participant. The registration fee can be paid online through PayPal or through the mail with a check. Your registration packet will include a running bib, T-shirt, and sponsor handouts.
Late registration opens on Monday May 24th and will remain open until the day of the run at $25 per participant. We cannot guarantee a T-shirt or packet through late registration.
The run is located at Fallbrook Town Center in Lincoln, NE (NW 6th ST & Fallbrook Blvd) on Saturday June 6th at 8 am. Packet pick up will be available the night before at the MS Center of Nebraska between the times of 4:30 - 7 pm, this is also located in Fallbrook Town Center at 575 Fallbrook Blvd. You may also pick up your packet the morning of the run and recommend you show up at least 30 minutes prior. Water and snacks will be provided following the run.
Awards will be given to the top three male and female qualifiers of the 5K.
Last year we had 200+ participants and were successful in raising $8,600 for MS; this year our goal is raise that by 50%! We were also awarded the biggest do-it-yourself fundraiser for the MS Society; thank you and congrats on those honors!
Running for a Cause
MS is a neurological disease where the body’s immune system attacks the nervous system and can become debilitating. This event has been organized as a fundraiser to fund for cutting edge research in order to drive change through advocacy, facilitate professional education, and provide programs and services designed to help people with MS and their families move their lives forward.
We are people who want to do something about MS now and are dedicated to achieving a world free of MS. On July 5th 2012 my husband Brian Anders was diagnosed with MS. Being an avid runner I wanted to find a race to run to raise money for the MS society. I wasn’t successful in finding a race. I felt I needed to do something. This is why I decided to organize an 5k run/1-mile walk.
