Time to lace up your sneakers for the Pugh’s Diamond Dash.

The 5k, walk/run will be Saturday morning at 8 a.m. at Pugh’s Diamond Jewelers. Registration begins at 7 a.m. and the cost is$20 for runners and $15 for walkers. All the money will be given to benefit Team GodSpeed.

"We are a team that have taken our gifts out into the community just as an outreach to talk to the children and promote health and fitness," says Christine Williams with Team GodSpeed.

The event is expected to raise a more than a thousand dollars. While there won’t be anyone chasing after a diamond, there may be something sparkling for early risers.

"So the first 50 women who register get diamond key ring bling, you will have to register and come to find out what that is," says Patrick Pugh.

You can register Saturday morning at Pugh’s or at team The Diamond Dash will go on rain or shine.
