August 29, 2014 Updated Aug 29, 2014 at 11:23 AM EDT

Headway of WNY will host its 5th Annual Walk, Run and Wheel 5K on September 7, 2014, at the Erie Basin Marina and The Hatch, in Buffalo. Registration and check-in begin at 8:30 a.m. with races commencing at 9:30 a.m. The cost for runners is $18 for pre-registration or $20 on the day of the event.

Sponsored by The Hatch restaurant, Dolce Panepinto Attorneys at Law and Feroleto Law, the event allows participants the opportunity to walk, run or wheel along Buffalo’s beautiful waterfront. A number of post-race festivities will be held, including a basket auction and live music. Refreshments will also be served.

Walkers are encouraged to form teams based on family, agency affiliation or company. There will be a prize this year for the team raising the most money, as well as first and second place prizes for individuals who bring in the most pledges. Runners will receive a small award for winning their age category and there will be a prize for top male and female runner.

All funds raised will support Headway’s mission of ensuring that individuals in WNY with brain injuries, other disabilities and seniors have access to advocacy, resources and support systems to enable them to live as independently as possible in the community.
