The Elks Lodge will hold the inaugural Elks Care Elks Share 5K Run and Walk on May 11 to benefit the Franklin Food Pantry and the Wounded Warriors Project.
The race kicks off at 10 a.m. at Lodge 2136, 1077 Pond St. The course, which begins and ends at the Elks Lodge, follows Pond Street, Southgate Road, Maple Street and Partridge Street.
The top three female and male finishers in each age group receive trophies and other awards. Already 125 people have registered with more expected to sign up in the week ahead.
Apart from the two main beneficiaries, a raffle has been planned to raise money for One Fund Boston — prizes include a baseball signed by Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester. Also, the sky-blue and yellow "Boston Strong" ribbon has been emblazoned on T-shirts created for the event.
