Wilmington, DE Residents Give Back for the Holidays: Presenting 10K for MS

The month of November is a prelude to the happiest time of the year: a time to observe seasonal changes, appreciate the year’s tidings, and a chance to give back to our community.

This year in the bustling business district of 19801, the 10k walk/run for MS kicks off the season quite nicely, capitalizing on community fundraising and bringing with it that special touch of selflessness that truly makes the season shine. If you are planning an extended stay in the Delaware area this November, this innovative activity is highly recommended. Here are the details:

The Wilmington, Delaware Walk for MS Sponsored by PNC Bank

The Wilmington, Delaware walk for MS is set to take place on Thanksgiving Day in the city. It is a rain or shine event, so participants might want to keep that in mind upon registration. If you have a vested interest in raising funds while engaging in a little bit of cardio, this event is definitely for you!

You can register at the Delaware Running Company, located at 4021 C Kennett Pike Greenville Crossings, Wilmington, DE 19807 now up until the big day. The whistle for the 10k run is scheduled to sound promptly at 9 AM and the 5k whistle will follow at 10:30 AM. Non competitors who wish to walk through for the cause can sign up for the 5k walk which is scheduled to kick off just a few minutes later at 10:35.

Your Children’s Place in the Race for MS

Tiny tots have a place in the race as well, but their course runs separately from the adults. The kiddie fun run, designed with the little ones in mind is scheduled to start at 10 AM and all parents/guardians are required to sign a waiver prior to commencement.

Refreshments and Rewards

In addition to the opportunity to raise funds for multiple sclerosis, top contributors and first, second and third place front runners also have the chance to snag a wide variety of prizes ranging from tee shirts to gift cards to gift certificates to the local eatery Buffalo Wild Wings. After a revitalizing run through, the Starbucks in the Nemours building where LuxiaSuites is located will be open from 6 AM until noon with friendly baristas pouring out piping cups of all the seasonal favorites.

Giving and receiving is a tried and true tradition in 19801. Learn more about events occurring during your an extended stay in Wilmington, DE this holiday season by contacting us today.
