“We are so excited to jump start the spring race season with this popular race for a great cause – the QRCF’s scholarship and grant programs! We were recently named one of the top races in Delaware by BestofDelaware.com, so check us out to see what all the hype is about!  The run itself is great – fast and flat – Palooza Plaza – featuring music, and other surprises, plus an after party for participants and their guests, that cannot be equaled.  This race is sure to sell out again this year, so I hope everyone registers early.” said Laurie McFaul, QRCF President.
“BunnyPalooza offers something for everyone.  For runners and their families, visitors and residents, the festival-like atmosphere is sure to be entertaining.” said McFaul.
Proceeds from BunnyPalooza  benefit the many individuals, groups, clubs, and organizations that are served by the QRCF.  “Events such as BunnyPalooza, our Hair of the Dog Run, and Caribbean Christmas help us fund two $8,000 scholarships annually to local students and both major and minor grants to area non-profits.  We are grateful for the extraordinary community support that helps us to do good work in the Quiet Resorts.” said McFaul.  “We have awarded more than $620,000 in our 16 year history.”  
“The QRCF is also excited to announce that we are currently accepting applications for our annual college scholarship program – an opportunity for an area senior to receive an $8,000 four year scholarship commitment to help a worthy student get ahead in college, and a $1,000 arts scholarship to a local junior or graduating senior.” added McFaul.  For more information, local students can find more information or apply online: www.qrcf.org.  The deadline for this year’s scholarships is April 11, 2018.
