Sign-ups continue for the Umpqua Strong 9k/5k run and walk.
The second annual event will be held on Saturday September 30th starting at Roseburg’s Stewart Park. The event is designed to create a positive community experience for those affected by the October 1st, 2015 tragedy at Umpqua Community College. Participants can walk or run either the 9K or the 5K course. There will also be a special kid’s race followed by an awards ceremony. People can also run “virtually” from wherever they may live around the world.
Along with the registration fee, teams and individuals are also encouraged to fundraise to benefit non-profit organizations in the county. You can designate donations from your team to the Umpqua Community College Foundation or to a member agency of Greater Douglas United Way that is providing service to those most impacted by the UCC tragedy.
Go to www.umpquastrong.org to sign up as a participant, volunteer or as a sponsor.
The Umpqua Strong 9K/5K run and walk on September 30th will begin at 10:00 a.m.
