Benjamin Franklin famously said that nothing is certain, except death and taxes, but no one ever said we have to stand around and wait for the inevitable. So let’s all run from the Tax Man! Will this work? Probably not. But if you have questions, you can always ask the experts at Heal Accounting in South Thomaston.
Registration starts at 8am. The race starts at 9am. Runners and walkers of all ages are welcome!! This 5K is part of the 2019 Midcoast Race Series and organized by the local non-profit, One Community Many Voices.
All the funds raised at the Tax Day 5k go directly to the 501c3 Non-Profit, One Community Many Voices (www.ocmv.org). OCMV provides gap funding through a model called: The Art of Good Fellowship – Paying it Forward One Neighbor at a Time. The model creates pathways that meet people where they are to resolve a barrier related to employment/skill building, youth aspirations, elderly independent living, transportation, or well-being as quickly as possible. OCMV is currently collaborating with Hospitality House, MCH, AIO, Rockland and Waldoboro Police Departments, Youthlinks, Knox County Community Health Coalition, Trekkers, Pen Bay YMCA, and The Shields Project. OCMV is a place for these agencies to turn to for simple human solutions to barriers when they have no other means to help an individual that meets the criteria.
The 5K race is open to all and costs $25 on race day or $20 in advance. We’ll have prizes for the fastest runners, the runner in the middle of the pack, and more!
