Featuring special guest emcee Brandon Gunnoe of 7News Boston - Proceeds To Benefit Non-Profit Organization Family Continuity
SANDWICH, Mass. – The High Five 5K, where each year hundreds of reveling runners prove that "Big smiles equal shorter miles," returns to Cape Cod on Saturday, Oct. 7 at 10 a.m.
The sixth annual super awesome 5K run begins and ends at Seafood Sam’s restaurant in Sandwich, Mass., looping around the scenic and friendly Town Neck neighborhood. All proceeds from the race benefit Family Continuity, a non-profit mental health and social services agency helping families and children on Cape Cod and Massachusetts. Family Continuity has a hub office in Hyannis.

Runners can register for the race at www.highfive5k.com. This year's event will also feature a series of short fun runs for children ages 4-9. Registration for the fun runs is free and available on race-day only.
The High Five 5K is hosted by the Mullet Marathoners (http://www.highfive5k.com/hosts), a group of runners with ultra-positive personalities who believe that “Big smiles equal shorter miles” and “It’s not work if you’re having run." The Mullet Marathoners employ a unique combination of encouragement, humor and high fives to help push their fellow runners to the finish line.
