Registration is now OPEN

The 2017 Cider Run: Registration is now open! 

Visit our event page here to read about the event and to sign up for the 5K run or 2 mile walk.


This year, we're encouraging people to participate in teams, either by joining a team or becoming a Team Captain. (You can designate which you'd prefer on your registration form when you sign up for the run/walk.) This is a great feature we're excited to premiere this year! Its main purpose is to let people assemble teams of runners or walkers for the Cider Run, and teams will be eligible for special prizes and awards the day of the race. 

However, a team can also be used as a social (aka peer-to-peer) fundraiser! This is accomplished by having each teammate credit their registration to their Captain when they register. They would then sign up for their own (free) Neon account, linking their page to their Captain's, and sharing with friends and family to encourage them to sign up for the Cider Run or make a donation. (A post with more detailed instructions will be pinned to the top of this blog soon.)

However you choose to participate in the Cider Run this yearwhether you'll be running or walking, flying solo or teaming up, donating your time or money, or spreading the word about what we do here at Valley Educational Associateswe appreciate you!
