OXFORD – For the third straight year, Team Chenango is about to embark on its 5K Walk/Run for Suicide Prevention. The 5K is set to be held Saturday, Oct. 12 on the park in Oxford.
Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the walk/run is slated to kick off at 10 a.m.
“On the park we will have family activities, food and a bake sale,” said organizer and member of Team Chenango Danielle Marshman. “You don't have to be a runner, you just have to want to support a good cause.”
The funds raised for Team Chenango will benefit the team's participation in the 18 mile Out of the Darkness Overnight Walk for Suicide Prevention, held in June of 2014 in Washington, D.C.
“Last year we walked with 2,000 other people and raised more than 2 million dollars,” Marshman added.
