The 10th Annual Steve Haydu St. Patrick’s Lo Tide Run is back again in Carolina Beach on March 15, 2014. Early race registration is currently open through March 1 for the 5K and 10K at www.lotiderun.org/. The cost to register early is $30 for the 5K/10K or $25 with a military or student ID. After March 1, the cost to register increases to $35. T-shirts are only guaranteed to those who pre-register, so don’t hesitate, because this year's design will be a must have! A popular registration option is creating or joining a team, special awards are given for team spirit, size and fastest time. All proceeds from registration fees, sponsors and individual donors are distributed to recipients selected by the volunteer board of directors to assist local cancer victims in financial need. On March 19, 2005, the first St. Patrick’s Lo-Tide Run was a wonderful success. Unfortunately, Steve lost his battle with cancer in May 2005, but this event lives on his name continuing to provide aid and financial support to area residents battling cancer. The recipients are New Hanover County residents diagnosed with cancer and are without medical insurance or in financial need. All donations are tax deductible. More than $53,000 was distributed directly to sixteen recipients from the proceeds of last year’s race. The impact in their lives of getting much needed financial help from their community is worth running for. The 10th annual race would not be possible without the continued support of our amazing sponsors, the growing number of participants, and our loyal volunteers.
