The Petal Jaycees are excited to invite our community to support our organization and register for our Halloween 5k & Fun Run on Saturday, 23 October 2021. The run will begin and end at the Petal Civic Center with a start time of 9 AM. The Civic Center is located at 714 S. Main St. in Petal. Race registration is $30 and includes a t-shirt. This will not be a timed run. Proceeds will go toward funding accessible playground equipment for our City parks, as well as providing future development opportunities for the young citizens of Petal. Costumes are encouraged, and we’ll have a prize for our favorite.
We welcome “virtual” registrants who may want to complete the 5k on their own time. Not interested in participating in the run but still want to support the cause? We are able to accept checks, made payable to Petal Junior Chamber or Venmo payments @Petal-Jaycees. Please put “playground” in the description.
In addition to run participants, the Petal Jaycees 5k committee is actively seeking sponsors for this event. If you are able to help out, please contact the chapter via email, firstname.lastname@example.org ATTN: 5K Committee. We would love to partner with your business! Sponsorships only cost $100 and include your business logo on the back of our shirts, our website, and our Facebook page leading up to the event. Sponsors are welcome to set up a table at the event and/or include promotional materials to give away.
Event registration, t-shirt sales, and sponsorship forms can be accessed on the Facebook event page, https://fb.me/e/Hso6cCds, or by emailing the chapter at email@example.com.
The event committee is keeping a close eye on Covid-19 safety protocols and will follow recommended guidelines from our state and local governments, as well as the CDC. In the event the race cannot take place in person, it will be moved to an entirely virtual event.
