Louis P. Garafalo 5k race/walk fundraiser is Sept. 30
STOTTVILLE -- The 27th annual Louis P. Garafalo 5K run and fun walk will take place on Sunday, September 30 in the hamlet of Stottville.
Sponsored by the Stottville Fire Company, the race consists of a challenging course for runners to test their abilities on, while also providing a less challenging course for walkers.
Registration for the event begins at 10:30 a.m. at the Stottville Fire House and the race and fun walk begin at 11:30 a.m. Registration costs $14. The first 100 participants will receive free t-shirts. The fire house is located on Atlantic Ave. in Stottville, a quarter-mile east of state Route 9.
Anyone seeking more information should contact a Stottville firefighter or race organizer Mary Garafalo at 828-2416.
All proceeds from the event benefit the fire company’s emergency medical service program.
The race is named after longtime volunteer firefighter and sports enthusiast Louis P. Garafalo and is organized by his children and their spouses, most of whom are members of the fire company.
