Ada Jenkins Fire 5k on April 17
There are still spots left in the 2nd annual Ada Jenkins Center Fire 5k, scheduled for April 17th, 2010. The Ada Jenkins Center in Davidson provides health, education and human services to citizens in northern Mecklenburg and southern Iredell counties, through programs including Loaves & Fishes, a free medical clinic and a low-cost after-school program.
This year, the race starts at 10 a.m., so when runners finish they will be first in line for the barbecue plate that they will receive as part of their reward. The barbecue is open to the pubic from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
For more information on the race, visit www.queencitytiming.com. Runners can register at www.sportoften.com. Registration is $25 before race day, or $35 on race day. The race ticket includes the runner’s choice of one pound of barbecue, or ½ pound of barbecue and all of the fixings, or up to 5 samples from the barbecue competitors or restaurants participating in the event.
The Ada Jenkins Center is located at 212 Gamble Street, Davidson.
