May 17, 2011:
The Navarre Beach Marine Sanctuary Committee (NBMSC), a program of the Navarre Chamber Foundation, is pleased to announce that the Navarre Beach Leaseholders and Residents Association (NBLRA) has voted to become a Prime Sponsor of the 3rd Annual Run For The Reef 5K Run/Walk and 1 Mile Fun Run on October 15, 2011. The Run For The Reef 5K Run/Walk and 1 Mile Fun Run benefits the NBMSC’s mission to bring shore-accessible snorkeling and diving reefs to both the Sound side and Gulf side waters off of beautiful Navarre Beach Park. The NBLRA’s generous $1000 gift, which will be presented to the NBMSC at 10a.m. on Saturday, May 21st at the Navarre Beach Marine Science Center, pushes the pre-race sponsorships for the Run For The Reef to record levels, insuring that this year’s event will be the most successful fund raising event ever to benefit the NBMSC. With the recent announcement of funding commitments for the actual construction of the reefs from Santa Rosa County and the TDC, the NBMSC looks forward to a point in the very near future where Navarre Beach Is Snorkelicious!!
