Race headquarters will be in front of the Peter Bren- ton Cabin. The run/walk is a Hokem Karem, where partners take turns run- ning or walking a mile un- til the team of two has com- pleted six miles. It is an ex- citing and easily watched race/walk, which is equal- ly fun for the runners and the fans. The entry fees will not on- ly support the race, but will also help the Petersburg Li- ons provide eye screening for all Pike County children through the elementary schools, provide exams and eye care for children and adults who cannot afford it, collect and recycle eye glass- es for worldwide distribution and reuse for those in need, and support the Indiana Eye Bank. Entrants are encour- aged to bring used glasses. The first forty entrants will receive a water bottle commemorating the race. Members of the winning teams will receive medals. All participants will receive bottled water and fresh fruit. Entry forms are avail- able from Lions Club mem- bers and at the Petersburg Hallmark store. Phantom participants who pay an en- try free will receive all ben- efits of participation except the running awards. Phan- tom participants are those who wish to donate but do not want to walk or run three miles. The usual date for the race is the second Saturday in June, but this year the date has been pushed back to the third Saturday to match with the governor's COVID-19 re- quest. Instead of tagging the hand of the outgoing runner, teammates will step on the shadow of their partner. So- cial distancing will also be practiced. Find a partner, get exercising and enter to help the Petersburg Lions meet the sigh saving needs of this community.
