INDIAN RIVER COUNTY -- The annual Indian River Habitat for Humanity HabiTrot to Higher Education 5K run and walk will take place March 30, at South Beach Park in Vero Beach. A one-mile Bunny Hop for Kids will take place just before the 5K gets under way.
Awards will go to: Top three finishers overall; top three male and top three female finishers in each age group. Age groups are 14 and under; 15-19; 20-29; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59; 60-69; 70-79; and 80 and over.
The fun-filled event was introduced to support Habitat's scholarship/education fund, which was formed to help give homeowners and their children a chance at higher education.
This fund helps to provide educational after-school care and summer care by subsidizing cost and grants scholarships for students and homeowners who are college-bound or for post-secondary educational programs.
Registration begins at 7 a.m.; the Bunny Hop begins at 7:30 a.m. and the 5K begins at 8 a.m.
HabiTrot pre-registration fee is $25; $30 day of race; and there is a $10 fee for the Bunny Hop.
