League of Defenders: Run 4 Kids

Bridgewater Falls in Fairfield Township
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Butler County’s Run 4 Kids 5K walk/run has been renamed as League of Defenders: Run 4 Kids. The event also has a new location this year. You will find us at Bridgewater Falls in Fairfield Township on Sunday, April 14.

Run 4 Kids features a chip-timed 5K walk/run. Walkers may choose to participate in the scavenger hunt during the walk. There will also be food, beverages and prizes for fastest run times in adult, teen and child categories as well as for the team with the most members and for the team that raises the most money.

To add to the fun this year’s event will feature a unique scavenger hunt that will take place along the walking/running route. The purpose of the scavenger hunt is to help Big Brothers Big Sisters catch notorious villain, The Extinguisher, who has stolen all the awards for Run 4 Kids! With the participants’ help, we can find the clues The Extinguisher has left behind so we can discover his henchman’s identity and get him to return the awards.

Register/Donate
Online registration is now open.

Early bird registration fees of $25 are available through Saturday, April 7. After April 7, registration fees will be $35.

This year our goal is to raise $75,000 at Run 4 Kids. All proceeds will be used to find, screen, train, match, and supervise new volunteer mentors for some of the 152 Butler County children who are currently waiting for a Big Brother or Big Sister. You can help defend the potential of local children when you register, donate or join a team.

League of Defenders Theme
Run 4 Kids will again be superhero themed. Dress as your favorite defender from books, films, or comics. Our mentors and donors are our favorite defenders. By volunteering to spend time with a child and develop a friendship that will change that child’s life or by providing financial support to make those relationships possible, they are igniting the potential of Butler County children and youth. We hope to see hundreds of new defenders at League of Defenders: Run 4 Kids!

Event Details:
8:00 AM - Check-in/registration
9:00 AM – 5K run begins
9:15 AM – 5K walk begins
10:30 AM – Closing ceremony and awards presentation.

Hops for Hope

Alexandria Brewing Company
In September 2018 my Mother, Melissa Davis (54), was unexpectedly diagnosed with Stage IV Ovarian Cancer. I am organizing a fundraising benefit for Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance (OCRA) to not only raise money for those affected by this disease, but to also bring awareness to our community that this is a silent killer that all women need to be aware of and take precautions against. Our efforts cannot go into effect without the collective help from those in our community.

OVARIAN CANCER RESEARCH ALLIANCE is the largest global charity funding ovarian cancer research. In the U.S., OCRA is the largest non-government funder of ovarian cancer research. Since 1998, they have awarded top scientists at 73 leading medical centers, 297 grants for ovarian cancer research and related programs: an investment of over $80 million. Every day, OCRA-funded scientists are improving women’s lives by finding new ways to prevent ovarian cancer, developing better methods to treat it, and pioneering pathways to cure this disease.

HOW YOU CAN HELP. The fundraising event for OCRA will be hosted at Alexandria Brewing Company in Alexandria, KY on Sunday, April 28th, 2019 from 12 pm to 3 pm. You can help in any of the ways listed below.

- Ad Space. Ad spaces will be sold at $200 for a small logo, $300 for a large logo. Your business’s logo will go on the back of the event t-shirts as well as any promotional materials. Monetary donations can be collected by mailing a check, or via this website (super easy!).

- Gifts for raffle. These can be in the form of gift cards, goods, services, etc. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for $5 each and drop their tickets in the drawings of various gift baskets. Baskets should be valued at a minimum of $50.

- Auction items. These are higher-value items that will be included in the live auction. We are only accepting 5 high-value items/collections, and these must be valued above $250. Businesses that donate a high-value item or collection will also receive a small ad space on the back of the shirts and in promotional materials.

- Resources. This can be in the form of volunteers, food or beverages, materials such as brochures or flyers, decorations, balloons, etc.

Please also visit our Facebook Event Page to stay up-to-date on the latest news regarding the event, including raffle and auction items, guest speakers, and more! https://www.facebook.com/events/1150315588454759/?ti=ia

20th Annual Kings Island Walk to Cure Diabetes

Kings Island
The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes is a fun, happy, healthy, and effective way to show your support for all those living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) and to raise funds for JDRF—the leading global organization focused on T1D research.

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. More than 15,000 children and 15,000 adults in the United States receive a diagnosis each year. That’s why JDRF holds more than 200 Walks nationally every year that connect walkers to an extensive community of families, volunteers, and donors who are committed to fighting this serious disease.

The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes has raised $1 billion to date. Your generosity helps us continue to accelerate progress in T1D research and keep people with T1D healthy while we work towards a cure.

Thank you for your support of the JDRF Walk!
