“Walk, Jog or Run – It’s all for Fun!”
Folks will be gathering at Burpee Park in Doylestown on Sunday, August 25th to participate in the season’s most laid-back sporting event — The Doylestown Un-Run.
Open to all ages, participants will check in at Burpee Park, located at 51-99 S. Church Street (between 11:30am – 12:00 pm) for fun activities prior to testing their athletic ability as they stroll, jog or run the .5 mile course to Chambers 19 Bistro & Bar in the heart of Doylestown. There, they will be rewarded, for their strenuous effort, with live music, drink specials, hors d’oeuvres, a silent raffle and 50/50. The After Party concludes around 3:00 p.m.
Pre-registration is $25 per participant. Registration for children aged 12 and under is $15. There is a $30 same-day registration fee. Registration includes an exclusive Un-Run t-shirt and a voucher for a complimentary drink at Chambers 19. To register, Text “UnRun” to 414-44 or visit www.bbbsbc.org/special-event. All proceeds benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bucks County.
“What a fun way to get involved with your community while serving a great cause.” says Rachel Kurtz, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bucks County.“ There are currently 220 children waiting to be matched. Of that number — 65% are boys. Any funds raised during The Doylestown Un-Run will help our staff recruit more mentors, interview more potential Bigs and Littles, and make a difference in a child’s life.”
About Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bucks County
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bucks County (BBBSBC) has been providing children facing adversity with professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships for 56 years—since 1963. Affiliated with Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, the Bucks County agency has been nationally recognized for providing the highest quality programs. Located in Jamison, Pa., BBBSBC is a donor supported, volunteer driven organization dedicated to helping Bucks County youth achieve success. Children matched with mentors gain greater self-confidence, are less likely to engage in risky behaviors—like using alcohol and drugs—and create higher goals for their future. There are over 200 kids on their waiting list, and 70% of them are boys. At Big Brothers Big Sisters, mentoring is not about saving a child, but rather about igniting, empowering, and defending their potential.
