It’s time for the annual Coach Carey Foundation Pound the Pavement fundraising event! This Saturday, July 20th, runners and walkers, strollers and canines will take to the pavement in Falls Park to raise money for the Coach Carey Foundation Scholarship Fund. An annual scholarship is awarded to a graduating high school senior runner(s) who has displayed sportsmanship, scholarship and leadership throughout his or her high school career.
The Pound the Pavement event features a 5K Run/Walk and a one-mile Fun Run/Stroller Strut/Dog Walk.
The Health Fair begins at 6:45 a.m. and takes place during the race and after. Medical professionals will be on-hand to administer cholesterol screenings and blood pressure checks.
The race kicks off at 8 a.m. The 5K course is USATF certified and is a blend of pavement wide trails. The one-mile Fun Run course takes place on pavement, so it is stroller-friendly! Bring out the kiddos and dogs for the Stroller Strut and Dog Walk.
In addition to the race, children will enjoy a large bounce house and a 46′ long junior obstacle course! The four-legged family members will even receive a free Pound the Pavement doggie bandana.
