4th Annual Boopa's Family 5K/10K Run

Location:
DFW Metro / Fort Worth, TX
Date/Time:
3/9/2013 / 8:00 am
 Description:
FORT WORTH — Boopa’s Bagel Deli is sponsoring the fourth annual Boopa’s Family 5K/10K race on Saturday, March 9th, with proceeds benefiting the Down Syndrome Partnership of North Texas. The three previous races have raised a total of $20,000 for the organization.
Among the 2012 participants was Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price, who welcomed and thanked the crowd before the start.
The event has grown beyond the original purpose of the race: to commemorate the founding efforts of Lisa and her son Jayden “Boopa” Underwood from 2000-2005. The first race three years ago marked the 5-year anniversary of the Underwoods’ deaths and 10 years since Lisa opened Boopa’s Bagel Deli with Holly Pils.
“Our little run has taken on a life of its own,” Pils said. “It’s more than just a memorial race or a fundraiser. We are spreading awareness about Down syndrome and giving our neighbors a way to show support.”
The start and finish of the USA Track & Field-certified courses are the front door of Boopa’s, from which participants head south and uphill on Beach St. and then westward. Signs will be posted along the courses with facts about Down syndrome and photos of local members of the DSPNT. Volunteers from the Haltom High School band will play at two points of the course.
To register for the March 9th race, go to Boopasbageldeli.com or register in person at Boopa’s Bagel Deli, 6513 N. Beach Street, Fort Worth, Texas 76137.
DOWN SYNDROME PARTNERSHIP OF NORTH TEXAS benefits the lives of people with Down syndrome and their families by providing information, social and educational activities and support designed to help achieve the universally desired goals of self-fulfillment, pride in one’s achievements and acceptance and inclusion in the community.
BOOPA’S BAGEL DELI has served DFW and beyond from its far north Fort Worth location for 13 years. The shop specializes in original bagel sandwiches, sausage rolls and customer service. If you don’t like bagels, you haven’t been to Boopa’s.
