SHOP WITH A COP - POLAR BEAR 5K, 8K, and POLAR CUB 1K

 

Event Purpose:

 

The 2013 Shop With a Cop Polar Bear Run is an event to benefit the Wadesboro Police Department’s Shop With a Cop program. This program helps positively change the lives of children in our local community by providing them with Christmas presents that they otherwise may not have received.  100% of all proceeds from this event will go towards this program. Each year the amount of gifts each child is able to receive depends entirely on money donated by the community, and raised through special events such as this one.

 

Event Activities:

 

Christmas is all about being filled with the spirit of giving, and we here at the Town of Wadesboro and the Wadesboro Police Department want to bring that spirit to our community. On race day, the Town of Wadesboro will be hosting a Christmas Festival uptown which will be geared towards the kids of our community.

 

• Santa Claus has promised us that he is going to make an appearance, and free digital photos will be provided to all the kids who want their pictures taken with Santa.

 

• Also, free Christmas ornament painting and stocking designing crafts will be sponsored by the Anson Arts Council.

 

• Live Christmas music by the Band “Limited Time,” and “Jumpers” for the kids will be provided.

 

• A Cornhole Tournament and Potato Sack race will also be held.

 

• Smokey the Bear and Sparky will also be at the festival, and, alongside Santa, will lead all the kids that come out around our Polar Cub 1k Walk. All kids that are 13 and under who participate will receive a Certificate of Completion for the 1k Walk with Santa, Smokey the Bear and Sparky.

 

The Town of Wadesboro wants this to be both a rewarding and fun event, and everyone is encouraged to come dressed as their favorite Christmas character. We hope to see a bunch of elves, polar bears and cubs, and reindeer running in our 5k, 8k, and 1k races.  Wearing normal attire instead of a costume is optional!
