Spencer Doll and Toy museum 5k fundraiser

SPENCER — If you like toys, dolls and exercise — and food too — then you might want to sign up for an upcoming race.
The Spencer Doll and Toy Museum will have a Doll and Dogs 5k Sunday, Oct. 12. Participants will run half the race, stop to eat three hot dogs, and then finish the second half of the race. The course will go through downtown Spencer.
Beth Nance, who founded the museum with her mother, Susan Morris. said the race is to raise money for the museum’s rotating exhibits.
The reason for the hot dogs? Nance said it’s to celebrate the memory of her sister, Amy Morris, who passed away in 1996. Nance said Amy loved to eat hot dogs and had a doll collection. The non-profit museum was founded in Amy’s memory.
“She was amazing,” Nance said about her sister.
The cost to enter the race is $25 per participant. Each runner will get a complimentary ticket to visit the museum, and the first 100 people who register will get a T-shirt.
There will also be a half-mile Fun-Run for children 12 and under. The cost is $10.
Registration begins at 12:30 p.m. the day of the race at the museum, and the race will start at 2 p.m. Awards will be given out for the top three finishers, men and women, in each age division and to the runner with the best overall time.
There will also be a costume contest.
To register, visit the store at 108 Fourth Street, or click the link on the museum’s website, www.spencerdollandtoymuseum.com.
