Name: X&A 5K and 3•21 Memorial Walk
Date: March 29, 2020
Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM EDT
Event Description:
The Month of March not only represents the celebration of Xavier's birthday but also the second anniversary of Xavier and Aidan's entering into eternal life on 3/21. The 3.21 Run commemorates this date.
Please join us in this community event to run the streets of Deshler, on roads they ran repeatedly over the years, in celebration of their lives. The 5K (3.1 mile) race starts at 2:30 pm and begins and ends at Pirate Park with all proceeds earned going towards improvement projects at Pirate Park.  The former Deshler School location, recently designated Pirate Park, is in its developmental stage. There will also be a 1 mile memorial walk for those who do not wish to participate in the timed 5K route. The Wensink family would like to see this green space become a community resource to promote wellness for the youth in the community.
The 5K run/walk race will offer homemade baked goods made by local bakers as door prizes to participants along with a free tribute wristband. Dave's Running will be facilitating chip timing technology for fast accurate results.
Register by March 20th to reserve your long sleeve T-shirt.  Race day registration will begin at noon and race price will increase to $30 with no shirt guarantee. Early Packet Pickup will be available Saturday, March 28, 2020, at the Patrick Henry High School cafeteria from noon-3 pm.

We will also have a 1K (0.6 mile) Fun Run for kids starting at 2:00 pm. Fun Run participants receive a medal, a tribute wristband, and Xavier and Aidan's favorite treats, skittles and cosmic brownies. Activities for kids will also be available at the park starting at noon. All kids activities and fun run are free but free will donations will be accepted. All donations will benefit Pirate Park improvements.
