2013 Event Date
Spring is here and it means it’s time to start preparing the Malverne 5K run. At its last meeting, the Malverne Educational and Fitness Foundation (MEFF) committee discussed changes that will be implemented in the 9th annual edition. October 6th was selected as the date of the event.
The kids race will precede (30 minutes) the 5K as last year, but will use the 5K finish line. This change will allow kids to be timed and their race will become virtually part of the run. The tradition of the annual t-shirt design will continue and be organized in the form of a design contest open to anyone who will be interested. Details will be announced in upcoming months. There will be only one location open for all the venues—registration and the awards ceremony with refreshments.
Sponsorship and Volunteers
With the 5k run kick-off meeting, the search for sponsors and volunteers started as well. We would like to have more lead cyclists and more course marshals on the street corners. Companies interested in sponsoring the event have an excellent opportunity to reach approximately 200 participants and their immediate family members. They are also encouraged to provide their samples or services for raffles. All proceeds from the event are used to support educational programs in the school district. If you work for a company that might be interested in becoming the main event sponsor, please share the sponsorship information with them.
