The Annual Dewey Beach 5K Buddy Run, benefiting Best Buddies Delaware and the Boardwalk Buddy Walk, will be held this Sunday, August 7 at 8 a.m. at 115 McKinley Street in Dewey Beach. Registration begins at 7 a.m.

Best Buddies Delaware has been providing life-changing experiences for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities throughout Delaware for over seven years.

In addition to the 5K run, there will be a one-mile fun for those who prefer to run a shorter distance. Participants (and the public) can enjoy an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast courtesy of the Dewey Beach Lion’s Club from 8-10 a.m. Breakfast tickets for those not participating in the race are $8 for adults and $4 for children. 

Pre-registration is $25 ($30 on event day) and includes the pancake breakfast, a premium running t-shirt, age-group awards, and an opportunity to meet some of the buddies! All are welcome to attend this celebration of community and friendship. Visit the website for event details, or to register or donate.
