1st ANNUAL DICK FRALICK RIVER RUN/WALK 5K
On Saturday, May 5th 2012 at 8:00am, I, along with the assistance of family and
volunteers, will be hosting the first annual Dick Fralick River Run/Walk. The event is
being held in honor of my late grandfather, Richard “Dick” Fralick. Dick was active in
the Millersburg community and well known throughout the area. He was a teacher at the
Millersburg school district for 38 years. I couldn’t think of a better way to honor the man.
All funds raised through registration will go directly to the Millersburg Ferry Boat
Association, which Dick had been past president of years ago. The race will be held
before the annual Millersburg Cherry Blossom Festival, which begins at 9:00am.
An event such as a 5k run/walk has expenses such as timing devices, race numbers, t-
shirt costs, and door prizes. Volunteers from my family as well as from the community
will provide registration, food and marshal service. We want to make this a successful
event that runners and walkers will look forward to each year. The route of the event will
be in and around the Millersburg borough, including MYO Park and along the
Susquehanna River. Please feel free to post the enclosed brochure about our run at your
Community events such as this creates a lively atmosphere around town and helps keep
people actively engaged. Please consider a donation to help with the cost of the event.
Any individual or company who makes a donation in excess of $100.00 will have their
business name placed on the back of the race day t-shirt. If you are able, please include
your business name emblem with the donation.
I appreciate your time and consideration. Monetary donations can be made to “Dick
Fralick River Run”. Address: 1646 Red Hill Rd., Dauphin, PA 17018. If you have any
