October 1, 2013 10:06 am

Beacon is sponsoring the 2nd Annual 5K Run, 1 Mile Walk, and Kids Fun Run hosted by the Young AFCEAns of Aberdeen, MD.  The event proceeds will benefit the Harford and Cecil County Schools’ STEM & Beyond Nights and the Little Leapers program at the Harford County Public Library, specifically ‘I am a Mechanical Engineer’ kit.

The event will feature a one mile walk and 5K race beginning next to the Ripken Stadium and with event participants jogging/walking past the Citizens Bank Park, Rookie Field, and Nationals Park. The course continues through some of the local roads before finishing on the warning track of the Ironbirds baseball diamond.

Following the race and new this year, there will be kids vendors such as Harford Glen, Eden Mill Nature Center, Wildlife Rescue, and the Robotics Club. They will also have a Kids Fun Run where all participants will receive a participation medal and get cheered on by the Ironbirds.
