Chapin Ruritan Club Helps Sponsor Jailbreak 5K
The Chapin Ruritan Club donated $100 to the Lexington County Sheriff’s Foundation in order to help sponsor the fifth annual Jailbreak 5K Run & Walk, which the Sheriff’s Foundation will conduct on Saturday, May 28. All proceeds from the event benefit the Sheriff’s Foundation.
On behalf of the Sheriff’s Foundation, Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts thanked the Chapin Ruritan Club for its sponsorship of the Jailbreak 5K. The Sheriff’s Foundation is a non-profit group that raises money to pay for equipment, supplies and training for deputies that can be difficult to acquire through the normal governmental budget process.
“We do not rely on local taxpayers to accomplish all of the law enforcement needs in Lexington County,” Metts said. “We reach out, as we did in this case to the Chapin Ruritan Club, to businesses and citizens in order to obtain financial support for law enforcement services.”
The fifth annual Jailbreak 5K Run & Walk will be held on Saturday, May 28, with the race and walk beginning at 8:30 a.m. at the Lexington County James R. Metts Law Enforcement Complex at 521 Gibson Road, Lexington, Metts said.
The fee for the Jailbreak 5K is $25 per person for persons who register prior to May 25, Metts said. The fee is $30 per person for persons who register after May 25. Citizens can register for the Jailbreak 5K online at: www.strictlyrunning.com.
