Toys for Tots kickoff 5K race Sunday


Marine Corps Reserve Detachment 3, Maintenance Company, is kicking off its annual Toys for Tots campaign at its third annual 5K race, cookout and family event Sunday at Imagination Station Park, 3372 Warren-Meadville Road.

The race is open to the public. Registration is from 1 to 2:30 p.m. and the race begins at 3. For participants registering for the race at the event, the fee is $25 with proceeds benefiting the Toys for Tots campaign. The first 50 registered runners receive a free T-shirt.

The event will also feature music, raffles, food, a bounce house for kids and a pull-up competition.

The mission of the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in that community.
