The 3rd annual Firecracker 5K to Benefit Campbell County Schools is set for July 4 at Deerfield.
The combination run/walk will begin at 8:30 a.m. at the Deerfield Restaurant. The entry fee is $25. The first 50 people who register will receive a t-shirt. Prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female finishers. Registration forms are available at the Press.
Last year’s race generated $7,000 for the Campbell County High School cross-country teams as well as a playground at one of the elementary schools. Race organizers hope to double that amount this year.
