Apollo to host 5K race to raise money for scholarship
The Apollo Area Business Association’s second annual Columbus Day 5K will raise money for a $500 scholarship to support an Apollo-Ridge senior going on to business school.
The race will start at 10 a.m. Oct. 5 on the Roaring Run Trail in Kiski Township. Registration ahead of time costs $25. Event-day registration is $30.
The top male and female runners will receive cash prizes. Winners in various age groups will be given medals.
Event proceeds will also support the annual Ready … Set… Go! Back to School Fair, which provides free school supplies for Apollo-area kids, as well as Apollo Borough’s Halloween Parade and Light Up Night.
