Race For A Reason, Sponsored By Margaritaville LIRunning SF


Blessings in a Backpack unites with Backpacks For Fellow Students to Host a 5K Fundraiser, “Race For A Reason.” All proceeds will support community students in need. Event is Sponsored by Margaritaville.

Please join us for our 2nd Annual sanctioned 5K Sponsored by Margaritaville. The race runs along beautiful Dune Road in Westhampton Beach. The event will be a fun, family event that includes medals, prizes, raffles and food. Music inspired by the sound of Jimmy Buffett will add to the events enjoyment. Event T-shirts and backpacks will be available to all participants, while supplies last.
