Here's a bit about the race from their Web site:
The Laura Griffin Memorial 5K Run/Walk is dedicated to healthy lifestyles, the prevention of substance abuse, and pedestrian safety.

Laura Griffin, former Director of the Office of Substance Abuse Prevention at the College of Charleston, died January 22, 1996 as a result of a hit-and-run accident on the Battery.

Adult entry is $25 (students are $13-18); late adult registration the day of the race is $30.

To enter, fill out this form, and postmark it by January 11 (yes, I know, that's a Sunday).
