3rd Annual Christmas Prediction Run

Gray, 3:00 PM

What is a prediction run? A run with NO watches, Garmins, phones, pedometers, etc. You predict how long it will take you to finish. The course will be approximately two miles but won’t be revealed until you get to the race.  It doesn’t matter how fast you are!  Walk or run… Anyone can win!  The person closest to his or her predicted time wins. Last year’s winner was only off by 2 seconds!

The winner receives $50 cash and the top five receive large gift bags full of great stuff.  A silent auction with a variety of home-baked cakes, pies, cookies, and other miscellaneous items will also be held.  Also enjoy BBQ sandwiches and Laura’s (my wife) world-famous hot homemade vegetable beef soup with chips, cookies, drinks, and water.

NO ENTRY FEE or registration needed! We are asking for a five dollar donation (but will, of course, accept more).

100% of the money goes to providing the residents of Lynn Haven nursing home with Christmas. Almost half of the residents have few or no family with whom to celebrate Christmas. Please come out and enjoy a fun time and some great food and help bring some love and joy to these shut-ins that often are forgotten.
If you plan to come an RSVP is requested for planning purposes, but it is not necessary.
