Calling all sponsors of the Harbor Hills 5K race! Our fourth annual ‘5K In The Hills’ will be held on Saturday, January 20th, 2018. The net proceeds will be donated to the Harbor Hills Ladies Charity, well-known for their hard work in helping local efforts for the needy. All money raised by these amazing women goes directly to organizations within our community.
The 5K Run raised over $7,500 last year. One hundred and twelve local participants and more than twenty generous sponsors made last year’s benefit a resounding success. Sandy Crabtree, President of the Harbor Hills Ladies Charity, explains that members will both work at and participate in the event. “We hope neighbors from all around the area will join us for this fun-filled day.”
Sponsors enjoy exposure in numerous media outlets and throughout the Harbor Hills Community. Three sponsorship levels are offered. They are: Gold level ($750 donation), Silver level ($500 donation) and Bronze level ($350 donation). Each tier receives varying degrees of promotion and web coverage.
Sponsor tents will provide an opportunity to offer samples and information to the Harbor Hills community and all runners and observers. Sponsors will also be recognized at the after-run celebration which includes awards, raffle drawings, music by DJ Opie and more. Companies and individuals interested in sponsorship can contact Adam Rich at 352-223-5652 or register at http:www.harborhills.com/5K.
And for those ages 62 and older, join us at the Harbor Hills Country Club this Wednesday at 10AM to learn about a Home Equity Conversion.

Before you say, ‘I can’t run a 5K,’ stop and think about this. You can walk, run, stroll or skip the 3.1 mile route split between the peaceful streets and plush fairways. That sounds much more doable, doesn’t it?
Ten age divisions from eleven years and under to sixty years and over! Awards will be given to the top three in each age group and overall male and female.
