ON SATURDAY, MAY 5...
LifeSouth Community Blood Centers is sponsoring a "Five Points of Life Kids' Marathon" at the Gwinnett Braves' Cool-Ray Field.
Kids in grades K-12 are eligible.
Particpants must register at www.fivepointsoflife.org or 352.224.1728.
REGISTRATION IS FREE! Refreshments will be available.
All particpants will receive a Five Points of Life Marathon medal and a commemorative tee-shirt.
Kids will not run a marathon, just the last 1.2 miles as if they had done so.
The goal is to promote good health through physical activity and to teach youngsters the "Five Points of Life"; five ways they can help save lives when they are old enough to do so.
The "Five Points" are - blood donation, platelets, bone marrow, cord blood and organ/tissue donation.
Cool-Ray Field, One Braves Avenue, Lawrenceville, GA 30049
