It’s time to break a sweat and enjoy some sweets, all in support of a great community partner.
Runners and walkers of all experience levels are encouraged to sign up for Shane’s Cupcake 5K set for Saturday, Feb. 22, at 9 a.m. at Aviation Park in Kill Devil Hills. Your $35 donation also includes entry to the post-run event at Outer Banks Brewing Station from 10 to noon, where you can enjoy a taco bar, specialty drinks, raffles and a DJ. (Those who don’t participate in the run can purchase a meal bracelet for $10.)
Proceeds from the event will benefit Manteo resident Shane Miles, an inspirational leader within the local running community who has been battling Stage IV colon cancer since December 2018. A former president of the Outer Banks Running Club, Shane started the Cupcake Run in 2012 and managed it for six years as a charity event to raise money for the American Cancer Society.
“An extrovert, he loves being around people, and running opened up a whole new group of people for him to befriend,” current OBRC president Jonathan Hope says about Shane.
