Running on Traditions (Part 3): Cocoa Beano

Next to coffee, what gets you through the day best? Chocolate, of course! As a Pre-K teacher, I’m constantly in the discussion, debating with my co-teachers over who is going to buy the monthly chocolate purchase to save a little of our sanity on those “off days.”  Of course, along with chocolate and coffee, exercise is part of that ultimate combo-pack to boost your overall daily attitude and well-being.

So, what if there was a way you could keep that weekday party going over the weekend?

There is! Join in the fun this fall with the Lagomarcino’s Cocoa Beano Race! What’s more fun than running…for chocolate? More importantly, all of the proceeds from the race go to support the Boys & Girl’s Club of the Mississippi Valley.

The 5K (3.1 mile) race will take place on Saturday, October 29th, 2016 at 9 AM in the Village of East Davenport. Registration includes the famous fleece jacket and chocolate at $40. And don’t forget the little ones! The Kid’s Fun Run takes place at 10 AM for children 12 and under. Registration for that is $5. If you’re not a runner, you are more than welcome to volunteer, just head on over the Lago’s website to find out how you can participate.
