CRESTVIEW — Mosaic Church in Crestview will sponsor this year's Crestview Pregnancy Center 5K Run on April 13.

The 5K run will begin at 8:30 a.m., followed by the kids’ fun run, for children ages 10 and under, at 9:30 a.m. The event will feature police and emergency vehicles on display, along with a helicopter that will land at the event.

Top male and female performers in the 5K, fun run and walking categories, and those pushing baby strollers, will earn awards. Additionally, door prizes including gift certificates from local businesses, such as a golf course and area restaurants, will be available. Each participant will receive snacks and a raffle ticket. Anyone who brings one or more packs of baby diapers will receive a raffle ticket.

Kids can enjoy face painting, balloons and a bounce house. The Mosaic Church band will provide live music.

"This event is one of our major fundraising events," Pregnancy Center director Sue Carrigan said. 

"One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to the Crestview Pregnancy Center," said race coordinator and church member Holly Fitzwater.

More participants have pre-registered, contrasted with last year, Fitzwater said. The 2012 event attracted 200 participants.
