Local elementary children to benefit from J.T. Rembert Memorial Run/Walk

Proceeds from the run/walk will go to the J.T. Rembert Memorial Enrichment Program and be used to assist local elementary school children in attending local camps and extracurricular activities.

The 3.2-mile event starts and ends at the Ritter Park Pavilion.

Cost to participate is $25 in advance and $32 on race day for adults, and $11 in advance and $15 on race day for children. Participants can sign up and donations can be made at www.tristateracer.com in advance. Registration by May 3 guarantees participants a t-shirt. Shirt availability will be limited on race day.

Also, registrations or donations can be mailed to: J.T. Rembert Memorial Fund, 617 10th Ave., West Huntington, W.Va. 25701. More information is available by e-mailing 3.2for32@gmail.com.
