5K Drug Awareness Run

(NEW DATE) Saturday March 30th 2019,

The Difference180 is hosting our 3nd Annual 5K Run for Drug Awareness. 

The opioid crisis in America is growing rapidly out of control.  Did you know in recent stats for opioid overdose and deaths, Wilmington, NC was #1 and Jacksonville, NC was #12 in the NATION.

This year the Difference180 is “Becoming part of the Solution” as we begin our fundraiser to open a New Sober Living Community in Onslow County.  Join us in the 5K run this April to fight this problem in our community and “Become part of the Solution”

T-shirts are included with registration before Monday March 18th is the deadline.

This year we will be having the Dry Fit Performance T-Shirts for the race.  After that date T-shirts cannot be guaranteed, so please sign up early.  We also have group sign-up discounts this year.  Check details on the event info tab.

There will be Finisher Medals issued out to all Registered Runners.  We will also have medals for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners per age group.

This year the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place overall runners will get trophies!!! 

All entrants will be issued a chip, will receive an official time, and be eligible for awards.

Have the whole family come out and enjoy this early spring event at The Commons.  There will be live music and food provided. 

No cover charge, non-runners welcomed.  There will be community leaders and organizations present that day.  Sheriff Hans Miller will be speaking and The DARE unit will be out there.
