Turning Point Holding Annual 5K Run/Walk

The fifth annual Baguette Run – a first step against domestic violence – is being held June 23th and will begin at the Panera Bread Café on Route 95, Marion, at 8:00 am. The event is to raise funds for victims of domestic violence and their families.

All the money raised during this event will be exclusively donated to Turing Point.

Participants are invited to enter either into the 5K run or to walk the course which will pass through the University Heights area south of Panera Bread.

The entry fee for both the run and the walk is $25 by June 15th and $30 after that date. Participants can enter online at www.premierraces.com, www.turningpoint6.org and Facebook. Registration forms can be picked up at either Turning Point or Panera Cafe.

The entry fee includes an official event t-shirt (guaranteed to the first 100 entrants), post-race refreshments provided by Panera and a chance to win great prizes.

This is a chip timed event with awards presented to the top over-all three men and women, as well as to the top three men and women finishers in 12 age groups.

You don’t have to be an athlete to participate in this event. Volunteers are needed to work the race, donations of door prizes are welcomed and monetary sponsorships are still being accepted. If you are interested in helping in any of these ways, or for more information, contact Amy Cooperider at Turning Point – 740/382-8988 or acooperider@turningpoint6.org.

Turning Point offers a 24-hour hotline for victims of domestic violence.  If you or someone you know needs help or if you would like more information, please call (800) 232-6505 or (740) 382-8988.
