ALL proceeds will be donated by the BACON Foundation to the Nemours Children's Hospital "Child Life" Program and Camp Boggy Creek. The "Child Life" Program at Nemours helps patients and families cope with medical treatment, diagnosis, and hospitalization through play, preparation, education, and self-expression. Camp Boggy Creek has made it possible for children with serious illnesses to enjoy a camp experience in a safe, medically-sound environment. Located just a short drive from Orlando, Florida, the 232-acre camp serves children ages 7-16 who've? been diagnosed with chronic or life-threatening conditions. Camp Boggy Creek never charges campers to attend and never asks them to contribute anything other than a positive, playful attitude. You have the guarantee from all members at the BACON Foundation that every dollar after race expenses will be donated to these wonderful beneficiaries! With your help we can continue to make a HUGE difference in many children's lives!
The 7th annual "PIG RUN of Lake Nona" is a 5K run with a very unique twist. At the halfway point you will enter our "PIG PEN" and attempt to eat some delicious glazed Dunkin' Donuts. How many donuts do I have to eat you ask?? That is completely up to you! Choose between 0,1,3,6 or if you are hungry (and brave) enough you can try out our "HOG" division and attempt to eat a dozen!!
This is NOT a timed race....more of a challenge. So come out and have some fun trying something different. 5K's are a dime a dozen...the "PIG RUN of Lake Nona" is something you can brag about finishing! And bring the whole family, as we will be having a free "Lil' Oinker Fun Run" immediately following the 5K.
**NEW THIS YEAR: All participants will receive a RACE BIB along with the usual swag of a shirt, finisher medal, donuts and a pig snout! The PIG RUN will be CAPPED at 1,400 local participants so register quickly! Not located in the Orlando area? Make sure you check out our VIRTUAL option! You can have your own PIG RUN where you live and we will ship you a shirt, finisher medal and a pig snout!!
From all of us associated with the "PIG RUN", thank you for your continued support!
