A brand new non-profit group called Beat the Bite is helping to spread awareness in North Carolina! Their first event is coming up on Sunday October the 14th (2012) in CARY North Carolina and it's the First Annual Beat the Bite 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run!
Come join everyone for fun in the sun - There are three levels of participation. First group are the competitive runners, the second group are the recreational runners and the third group are the one mile fun runners (walkers). Registration is $25 for the 5K portion of the race and $10 for the 1 mile fun run.
Register for participation here at Beat the Bite.
Can't participate because you don't live in the area? That's okay because you can send donations anyway.
All proceeds from this event are going to TIC-NC (Tick-Borne Infections Council of North Carolina).
I am hoping to be able to go AND walk it out, but I plan on supporting Beat the Bite any way I can even if I can't actually participate on the day. Who wants to walk it out with me!?!
