Registrations are now being taken for the Third Annual Memorial Day 5K Fun Run, scheduled for 8 a.m. on Monday, May 30, at the Tewksbury Country Club.
The Tewksbury Rotary Club and Tewksbury Lions Club will oversee the race this year and will split the proceeds from the event.
"(The Lions) will be putting our share mostly toward our scholarship fund," said race organizer Jerry Selissen.
According to Tewksbury Rotary President Erin Knyff, the Rotary will be using their share of the proceeds to fund their various charitable works in the community, including such things as scholarships, helping the Tewksbury Community Food Pantry and the July 4 activities.
In the past, the race has benefitted the Wounded Warrior Project, Strongwater Farm and the Tewksbury Community Food Pantry.
The registration fee for the event is $30. Each of the first 300 registrants will receive a race t-shirt and a complimentary race "swag bag." Runners and walkers can register online at www. lightboxreg.com/5k-fun-run_2016
The course for the runs along the edge of the country club's 9-hole golf course and along some neighboring streets.
