DECA club helps MDA
King George High School’s DECA club is raising money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association by hosting the DECA 5K for MDA on Veteran’s Day, Nov. 12.
The event is the chapter’s community service project. MDA is dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases by funding worldwide research. The association also provides comprehensive health care and support services and provides assistance to several families in King George.
The 5K event is open to all ages, and there’s a Mile Kids Run for ages 12 and under. The cost is $25 for the 5K and $10 for the kids’ run. A $5 late fee will be charged to those who register after Nov. 4.
Check-in begins at 8:30 a.m., with the 5K starting at 9, the kids’ run at 10, and awards at 10:30. More information is available at http://www.kgdeca.org/, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or stopping by the main office at King George High School.
