CRESTVIEW — Shoal River Middle School’s annual Annelise's Wild Mustang 5K Run/Walk begins at 9 a.m. May 18 on the Redstone Avenue campus.

Registration for participants costs $20. The first 100 participants will receive a free T-shirt. Printable registration forms are available at okaloosaschools/shoalriver.

Early registration forms are accepted 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at the school's front office.

Money raised from this event will benefit the school's boys and girls track teams.

Last year's event raised nearly $2,700, principal Paul Whiddon said.

"Since I have been here, it has been very successful, which comes in handy for our boys and girls track teams,” he said.

Unlike most school sporting events, track meets do not charge for admission, which limits the program’s funding, Whiddon said.
