Chocolate, a pair of running shoes and you: the first Hot Cocoa 5K Run and Walk for the Safe Haven Project, an event where all proceeds go directly to the spring camp, is set for April 20.
The run will be the kick-off event of this year’s Safe Haven camp, which brings children with HIV and AIDS together for a week away from judgment on Martha’s Vineyard.
The race begins at 10 a.m. on the first full day of camp, April 20, followed by cocoa, cookout and celebration at the finish line with this year’s campers.
Registration is $25, or a donation form with a minimum of $50 (forms online at safehavenproject.org). First place runner receives dinner for two,; top fundraiser receives an I-Pod.
Starting line is at the high school. For details, call 508-627-7617 or 508-524-2983.
