About This Activity

The Wal-Mart Asset Protection Team of Market 310 is hosting the 1st Annual "Movin' for Maverick" Costume Fun Run & Walk 5K on October, 25th 2014, at Hope Mills Town Hall. We are running in remembrance of Maverick Stoffel. All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals to benefit other children in need.

Meet Maverick: On December 5th, 2013 Maverick Duke Stoffel graced the world. He quickly stole our hearts, but almost instantly we knew something was amiss with our baby. His first day of life proved difficult to say the least, as he was airlifted to Duke University Hospital. We waited as patiently as possible for some answers. Maverick was diagnosed with Smith Lemli Opitz Syndrome and a sea of other medical issues. For 17 days we fought for our son’s life. Although those 17 days were not easy, we were blessed with his presence, life and love. We are parents to three children, two who walk and one who soars. Our hope is to spread love in Maverick’s name.

This event is open to all ages and athletic abilities. Even if you aren't a seasoned runner, it doesn't matter. This untimed run/walk is more about having fun, than running the perfect mile. Whether you plan to run, walk, skip or hop to the finish line, you will be sure to have fun. Costumes are encouraged, but not required. There will be music, candy and awards for best costumes. So be creative! Children are encouraged to bring a bag so that they can trick or treat at each mile marker.
