Pinewood Preparatory School is putting a new philanthropic spin on its annual 5K race. This year’s Pinewood Back Nine 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run will benefit local nonprofit Chase After a Cure. The race is 7:45 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday, April 20, at Legend Oaks Golf & Tennis Club, 118 Legend Oaks Way in Summerville.
The partnership between Pinewood Prep and Chase After a Cure began at the end of last year when the independent school kicked off a series of fundraisers to benefit Chase After a Cure, which raises funds for pediatric cancer research at the Medical University of South Carolina.
Head of School Steve Mandell has committed to shaving his head should the students reach their $10,000 fundraising goal. The money will be used to support both Chase After a Cure, which raises money for pediatric cancer research, and Pinewood’s science department.
Also students will study butterflies in their science classes, monitoring the life cycle from larvae into a full butterfly – a worldwide symbol of endurance, hope and life. The butterflies will be released at a ceremony on May 14 to celebrate the end of the fundraiser.
Pinewood Back Nine 5K will be on the asphalt golf cart path at Legend Oaks and the race is a USATF certified course. Space is limited so register early. Prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female finishers overall, plus standard five-year age groups. All finishers in the 1-mile fun run will receive a prize, plus awards will be given to the top three male and females finishers and for ages 6 and under; 7 and 8; 9 and 10; and 11 and 12.
Packet pickup will be noon to 6 p.m. Friday, April 19 at Legend Oaks and the morning of the event at 7:30 a.m. Registration is $30 for the 5K and $15 for the 1-mile fun run.
