Early bird registration for the 42nd annual Lilac Bloomsday Run is now open at www.bloomsdayrun.org. Those who sign up by February 11th will have a chance to win either an Apple iPhone 8 64GB model or a Samsung Galaxy S8 64GB (winner gets his or her choice).
Everyone who enters Bloomsday online through February 11th will be automatically entered in the Apple iPhone or Samsung Galaxy drawing. The early bird drawing has been going on for many years, but this is only the second time the winner will be able to choose between two different items.
Those signing up for Bloomsday will also have the opportunity to add a donation to the Spokane Guilds’ School & Neuromuscular Center, which has been selected as Bloomsday’s official charity for 2018. The Guilds’ School is a 57-year-old nonprofit that provides a high-quality early-intervention program for children, from birth to age 3, who are impacted by developmental disabilities and delays. The Spokane Guilds’ School serves children who were born prematurely, have cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, muscular dystrophy, autism, chromosomal deletions, various syndromes, shaken baby syndrome and general delays.
