NORTH SHORES IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION
22st Annual Vilano Bridge 5K Run / Walk
MARCH 17, 2018
In our 22nd year of running this race we continue to enhance our event. This year the race will be known as Vinny’s Vilano Bridge 5K/10K . New this year, as an addition to our scenic 5K over the Vilano Bridge, we’re adding a 10K. It will run the bridge and through more of Vilano and Porpoise Point communities.
This event supports the efforts of the North Shores Improvement Association (NSIA) and the American Red Cross to sustain and improve the quality of life in our local communities. Past proceeds were used to help Hurricane Matthew and Irma victims. Lunches were provided, donations were, gathered and distributed to support recovery efforts in the community. The community center hosts bi-monthly Bingo, new weekly Art Program sessions, Church services and Pilates. The center has a community garden, children’s playground, tennis courts etc. Maintenance and renovation projects are ongoing. A new roof and bathrooms were recently completed. We’re really excited about our renovations to encourage the centers ongoing use by the public.
Please consider being part of this valuable service to our community and the American Red Cross!!! Last year we donated to the American Red Cross due to their tremendous local disaster relief support. This year we are happy to announce we will be continuing our support to the American Red Cross for obvious reasons.
Now this year and very exciting!!! In addition to our popular 5K run over the scenic Vilano Bridge, we’re adding a 10K run taking our runners through more of the Vilano and Porpoise Point communities.
The 5k Run/Walk begins and ends at the North Shores Community Center, crossing the scenic Vilano bridge. A lively after-party allows runners, families and friends to celebrate following the event.
