MIDDLEPORT – Before eating snacks at the big game on Sunday, the Middleport community welcomes participants for the 35th annual Mr. Ed’s Super Bowl Warm-up.

The event includes a 5k walk, run and 1-mile fun run.

Race organizers have raised more than $115,000 in scholarships for Roy-Hart seniors and alumni  entering the criminal justice or medical fields.

Proceeds have also gone to people in the community who lost their homes to a fire, or are battling serious illnesses such as cancer.

The event also has raised money for the Village of Middleport Hometown Heroes program, and the Beautification Committee.  Most recently some of the proceeds went to help the Middleport Fire Company purchase the LUCAS Device (automatic CPR).

Following the race there is a post-race party at the Middleport Fire Hall.

Sign up is available the day of the race at the fire hall, with the walk starting at 10 a.m., fun run at 11 a.m. with the 5K race at 11:30 am.
