DLO Musical Theatre sets 5K fundraising run Sept. 30

DANVILLE — Danville Light Opera Musical Theatre is planning a 5K fundraising run with an aquatic theme later this month.

Check-in for the "RUNder the Sea 5K" event begins at 7 a.m. Sept. 30 in downtown Danville; the run starts at 8 a.m. The entry fee is $25 for adults and $10 for children 12 and younger. You can register at runsignup.com/Race/IL/Danville/RUNdertheSea5k.

Medals will be awarded in four categories: best male and female over and under 18. Each participant will receive a T-shirt.

Runners, walkers and inline skaters are welcome.

Participants will have the chance to meet and have their photos taken with Ariel and other characters in DLO Musical Theatre's fall show, Disney's "The Little Mermaid," to be presented Oct. 20-22 at Danville High School. Cast members will also perform songs at the event. People can also enter a costume contest for aquatic creatures.
