  • The Fourth Annual Sicily’s Run will be held Saturday  and there is still time to register for the 5K and/or ½ mile Fun Run. Runner, joggers, and walkers are welcome! Registration begins at 7:30 am at the Knights of Columbus building, 201 E. Harvey in Wellington.  Those registering up to the morning of the event cannot be guaranteed a race t-shirt but are welcome to register. The 5K will begin at 8:30 am and the ½ mile at 9:30 am.  Daylight Donuts, coffee, and juice will be available for a donation beginning at 7:30 am.
    All proceeds from Sicily’s Run go to the Sicily Zeka Memorial Scholarship Fund. Each year until the year 2023, when Sicily would have graduated, a Wellington High School graduating senior pursuing a career in medicine will be awarded a scholarship. Sicily Zeka, a Wellington resident until June 2008, was diagnosed in August 2008 with Bi-lateral Wilm’s Tumor, pediatric cancer of the kidneys. She fought bravely before passing away March 21, 2010, just shy of her 5th birthday.
    The morning will be festive with music played by Brad Ewing, and Shelley Hansel will emcee. Volunteers will be stationed along the route cheering participants on, and participants will be treated to fruit and water at the finish line.
    There will be medals awarded to winners of the age divisions, and the overall male and female winner will be awarded a new $50 bill. There will also be door prizes presented during the medal presentation.
    A Silent Auction will be held in the Knights of Columbus from 7:30-10:00, with proceeds supplementing the scholarship fund. The auction is open to the public.
    The following items will be in the Silent Auction:
