Buckley will again be home to the MK5K and one-mile fun run, an event that directly benefits women’s causes.
The fifth annual event, staged by local Mary Kay Foundation volunteers, will see walkers and joggers covering the popular Foothills Trail the morning of Saturday, May 19. The event begins and ends in front of the Buckley Youth Center, 251 N. River Ave. Registration starts at 8 a.m., the one-mile fun run/walk departs at 9 and the 5K run/walk follows at 9:30. Proceeds from the May 19 event will benefit the Mary Kay Foundation to support scientists working on causes for breast, uterine, cervical and ovarian cancers and provide grants that fund shelters for victims of domestic violence.
Morning-of registration is available, but organizers encourage participants to sign up in advance at: https://runsignup.com/Race/WA/Buckley/MK5Kandonemilefunrun.
