The 4th Annual Sports for Sound fund-raising event will be held Saturday, May 20th with all proceeds assisting hearing impaired patients in Tuscarawas & Carroll Counties, Ohio. This family friendly event includes a 5K Obstacle Run, 10K run, 5K Walk, Kid Obstacle Course. Other special events include a silent auction as well as a chinese auction with all proceeds benefiting Sports for Sound.
Hosted at the Eastern Ohio Sports Complex, the 5K Obstacle Run requires participants to wear ear plugs during the first lap of the race to better understand their reliance on hearing and how their experience differs while his/her hearing is impaired. While the 10K does not require runners to wear ear plugs, we encourage it for the experience. Also, the 10K course is a challenging course with different variations of hills. Awards will go to top 3 finishers in each age group for the Obstacle Run and 10K Race
All participants receive an official Sports for Sound bag, t-shirt, and complimentary food & drink.
All Sports for Sound attendees can bid on awesome silent auction items including tickets to sporting events & signed memorabilia, and enjoy delicious food & refreshments (non-participants are encouraged to come & bid on auction items as well as attend for lunch).
