Mania Shuffle starts Wednesday, will run eight weeks as Children's Auction fundraiser

GILFORD — Get your sneakers ready for the first-ever Mania Shuffle, a 2 ½ mile fun run/walk every Wednesday beginning Wednesday, Sept 11 at 6 p.m. and running for 8 weeks.

Designed as a fundraising event for the Patrick's Pub Mania event, the Mania Shuffle has similar intentions. "This is about participating, having fun and making an impact in our community" explains Patrick's co-owner Allan Beetle and Pub Mania Head Referee. "It's a unique way to be part of this great event while getting outside for some exercise and fun".

The 2 ½ mile course begins at Patrick's parking lot in Gilford and meanders over and through the beautiful Meadowbrook property before looping back to Patrick's. Organizers stress that the Mania Shuffle is not designed to be a competitive event. The $10 entry fee will be donated to the Pub Mania team of your choice and includes a complimentary beverage and chance to win in a post-shuffle raffle.

The Mania Shuffle will run for 8 weeks, rain or shine, and participants who complete the course at least 5 times get a special, limited edition Mania Shuffle T Shirt. Start time is 6 p.m. sharp and participants are encouraged to arrive at least 20 minutes early for registration.

100% of the proceeds of the Mania Shuffle will pass through to the LNH Children's Auction and on to children, families and programs here in the Lakes Region. Last year Pub Mania raised $165,300 for the LNH Children's Auction and has now raised $384,570 in the first four years of the event.
