From a 10K Handcycle race and a Kids’ Mile to a fabulous after party, this year’s Project Walk Fun Run and Roll at Sienna Plantation promises fun for everyone.
The event gets rolling at 7 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, at Ridge Point High School, 500 Waters Lake Boulevard with the 10K Handcycle race. Handcycles are three-wheeled cycles propelled by the arms instead of the legs. Next up will be the 10K run, the 5K run and the Kids’ Mile.
After racers rock, roll and run, they and their support teams can enjoy a post-race party and awards ceremony featuring music, bounce houses and melt-in-your mouth pancakes made by the Knights of Columbus. VERTS will be handing out samples and food trucks will have food available for purchase.
Awards will be presented to the first place male and female finishers in each 10-year age grouping, from 14 and under to 70+. Awards for team spirit and top individual and team fundraisers also will be presented.
Same day registration is available, starting at 6 a.m. on the day of the race. Individuals and teams who are already registered can pick up their packets from 4-8 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 15, at the HEB Sienna Market - Community Room, 8900 HWY 6. Racers also can register at the pick-up site, as well as online at https://raceroster.com/events/2016/9560/project-walk-fun-run-roll.
Participants will receive a race bib, t-shirt, finisher medal and entry to the post-race party. All proceeds benefit the Project Walk Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides scholarships for a full year of activity-based recovery treatments for paralysis at the Project Walk Paralysis Recovery Center Houston.
The Project Walk Fun Run and Roll was founded by Sienna residents Mark and Cindy Dremely, whose late son, Brooks, suffered a cervical injury caused by a motocross accident. The Dremelys own the Project Walk center. Learn more about the facility at www.projectwalk.com/houston.
