I'm wondering if you could help us spread the word for the Lake Pearl Plunge 5K this Saturday, August 22!
We are trying to raise money to build a new boat ramp at the Lake Pearl Boat Launch which currently has deteriorated so far that it causes damage to boats and truck often. It also causes pollution to the lake because trucks have to back so far into the water to launch their boat that the truck exhausts are fully submerged, due to the extremely shallow depth at the boat launch.
I know a LOT of Franklin-ers that love and use the lake and would greatly benefit from the restorations we are raising money for. It will cost just under $20k to rebuild and we are over 90% of the way to our goal.
The 5k will take place on August 22 at Lake Pearl 299 Creek St. Wrentham. Check in will open at 8 and the race will start at 9. Runners will get to run around Lake Archer and finish with a splash as they plunge into Lake Pearl at the finish line.
We have received massive amounts of support from local businesses in the form of sponsorships and prize donations for the runners. Prizes include gift cards to Davios in Foxboro, MacDeli in Franklin, Bass Pro Shops, James' Breakfast and More in Wrentham, and more. Bass Pro has also donated goody bags for the first 100 participants to register that include goodies from many local businesses!
