5k walk/run for SDHS nears

The music parents of South Decatur High School will be hosting the second annual Fall Fun Run 5k run/walk race Oct. 19. Entry fee for the event is $25 and according to race director Robyn Davis, the 2012 event was a great success!

“We had more than 100 people participate as volunteers or racers and we had a great time.”

The 2013 race is promising to be a great event as well. This year the race will be held the same day as the Decatur County Memorial Hospital Westport Health Fair and Business Expo, which draws a large crowd every year.

One of the things that both our volunteers and our racers really enjoy are the t-shirt, door prizes and goody bags. We would love to include your business on our shirts as a sponsor and/ or our door prize sponsor poster, or have an item from your business in our goody bags which go home with each person in attendance.

A door prize can be anything your business would like to donate. Last year we had everything from teddy bears to gift certificates. Goody bag items included food coupons, pens and business cards. The shirt sponsors are prominently displayed on the back of the race shirt. Davis, said that as a race sponsor through her business, she does not overcrowd the logo’s so business logo’s will be large enough to be seen. Shirt sponsorship is $100 and payable to SDHS Music Parents.

For additional information regarding the event; Davis can be contacted at (812) 591.8232 or online at
