Northeast Opportunities for Wellness, Inc. (NOW) is excited to share that Centreville Bank will be attending the 9th Annual NOW Road Race & Walk on Sunday, September 19, 2021 as the Race Day Sponsor. Held annually since 2012, the Road Race features a scenic run along the quiet streets of Alexander’s Lake in Dayville and raises funds for NOW.
Subtitled, “Lap the Lake” the race is a traditional timed 5K (3.1 miles), starting at The Lake Tavern on Upper Maple Street in Dayville, with one “lap” around Alexander’s Lake and finishing back at The Lake Tavern. The event is inclusive of runners and walkers, with individuals of all levels of fitness encouraged to participate. There will be cash prizes awarded to the top 3 male and female runners. The event also features a Kids Fun Run, with children of all ages invited to participate.
NOW is ecstatic to receive such support from Centreville Bank through the Race Day Sponsorship as well as additional support with employees walking and running in the event. NOW Executive Director, Tayler Shea, commented, “We are very appreciative to Centreville Bank for their generous sponsorship in the 2021 NOW Road Race, it is a true representation of their investment in wellness and wellbeing.” Shea continued, “We are even more thrilled to have Centreville Bank employees join us as a team on race day.”
For 2021, NOW will once again offer a long-sleeved, moisture wicking tech t-shirt to race participants as an add-on to registration. The shirt will feature the event logo on the front, with sponsor logos on the back. A variety of sponsorships, including t-shirt sponsorships, are currently available as an opportunity for local businesses to show support for NOW. All proceeds of the Road Race will support NOW youth programs and scholarships.
