The PFBF CPAs “Run the Numbers” 5K & Kids Fun Run started in 2010 and raised $1,700 for charity. Eight years later the race has grown in numbers, bringing in over $100,000 for various Maine charities thanks to their participants and generous community sponsors.
This year, all proceeds will go to the Alfond Youth Center’s Camp Tracy Campership Fund. The funds will help send area youth to Camp Tracy where children are taught team building, leadership, and independence skills through a wide variety of daily activities while having a positive social experience. The Harold Alfond Foundation has agreed to make a matching donation for every dollar raised.
The 9th Annual road race will be on Saturday, June 16th which begins and ends at the office of One River CPAs (PFBF CPAs) on 46 First Park Drive in Oakland. The Kids Fun Run, free for kids 12 & under, starts at 8:30 a.m., followed by the professionally timed 5K Run/Walk which starts at 9:00 a.m. Youth and student rates are available.
Cash prizes will be given to the top three Overall Female/Male finishers as well as the top male and female finishers in each category. There will be a post-race party with music, food and drinks. Mac Dickson of 92 Moose will return for his 6th year as the Master of Ceremonies.
