5K to benefit pediatric cancer research

The annual Pinewood Back Nine 5K and one-mile fun run will benefit Chase After a Cure, a non-profit organization that raises money for pediatric cancer research at MUSC.

The USATF-certified race will be held at 7:45 a.m. Saturday, April 20 at Legend Oaks Golf & Tennis Club, 118 Legend Oaks Way in Summerville.

If the students of Pinewood Preparatory School reach their fundraising goal of $10,000, Head of School Steve Mandell has committed to shaving his head.

Prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female finishers, plus standard five-year age groups. All finishers in the one-mile fun run will receive a prize.

Packet pickup will be from noon until 6 p.m. Friday, April 19 at Legend Oaks and the morning of the event. Registration is $30 for the 5K and $15 for the one-mile fun run. Those registering after April 4 will not be guaranteed a T-shirt.
