SAN DIEGO – Integrated Sports Marketing is proud to announce that San Diego Chargers quarterback, Philip Rivers, will host the 3rd annual “Philip Rivers 5K Walk & Fun Run presented by EDCO.”
Scheduled for Saturday June 16, the charity event will take place at NTC Park in Liberty Station in Point Loma. The 5K run will begin at 8:25 am and the walk will begin at 8:30 am, and will include a picturesque walk along the water. Proceeds will benefit the Rivers of Hope Foundation, a non-profit charity started by Philip and Tiffany Rivers in April 2010.
"The 5K benefits the Rivers of Hope Foundation and the numerous programs we have put in place to benefit foster children here in San Diego,” said Philip Rivers. “There are a lot of kids in need, and this walk and fun run not only raises money to help, but it also brings a lot of awareness to what they are going through. It is a fun day for everyone, and it is a great way for people to get together and support a very worthy cause."
Family owned and operated EDCO is back again as this year’s presenting sponsor. Sandy Burr, of EDCO, added, “We’re so proud to support Philip in his charitable efforts to help foster kids throughout San Diego County.”
The Philip Rivers 5K Walk & Fun Run represents a great opportunity for serious and casual runners, as well as family members and friends, to kick off the summer. Awards will be given to the top three runners in each age division. Post-race activities for all ages will include family themed live music, an autograph booth featuring local celebrities, a complimentary food court and a kid’s fun zone with games, bounce houses, and much more.
Paid entrants will also receive a commemorative T-shirt, race gift bag and a hand-signed Philip Rivers Football card (available to the first 1,500 paid participants).
