Island Run for Big Brothers Big Sisters

SUNBURY – For a second year, an Island Run 5K race is planned to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central PA. Peggy Reichenbach helped organize the race taking place on Saturday, November 9th on Packer Island between Sunbury and Northumberland. Last year’s event was at the Shikellamy Marina, but this year the race will be moved.

Reichenbach said, “We now are having it on the streets of Packer Island. We are going to be starting at the Sunbury Airport and that’s where people will park their cars. We will start right on that street and run the streets of the Island.”

You can register for the race at the Sunbury Airport Campground from 7:30 to 8:45 and then race begins at 9 a.m. Free t-shirts will be given to those who pre-register at www.bigbrothersbigsistersofcentralpa.org. All proceeds support the organization, which provides children in the community an adult mentor. (Ali Stevens)
