OCEAN CITY- The second annual Storm Warriors 5K run and walk for the benefit of the Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum is set for this weekend with a 9 a.m. start on Saturday.
Proceeds from the second-ever Storm Warriors 5K are going to the Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum at the foot of the Boardwalk for a variety of purposes including exhibits, artifact collection, building upkeep and its interactive programs throughout the year. The museum, designed to help residents and visitors experience the historical role performed by surfmen during the heyday of the Life Saving Station, is a non-profit which primarily receives funding from donations and fundraisers. Last year, the inaugural Storm Warriors 5K, produced by OC Tri Running, was held and began at the museum and continued along the Boardwalk to 17th Street. A total of 84 runners competed, all for the benefit of the museum.
