ROSWELL, Ga. -- Wiphan Care Ministries' annual 5K, the Warthog Waddle, will be held in Roswell this weekend.

The race will be Saturday, Feb. 22 at Fellowship Bible Church. Registration and packet pick-up will begin at 6:45 a.m. A 1K fun run will start at 8 a.m., while the 5K will be off and running at 8:30 a.m.

Awards will be given to the overall male and female winners, and the top three finishers in each age group. All runners will also receive technical T-shirts, while fun run participants will get carved African pendants.

The Warthog Waddle costs $30 for the 5K and $20 for the 1K. Proceeds will benefit Wiphan, which cares for widows and orphans in Zambia. Race organizers hope to raise $25,000 for the charity.

A pre- and post-race market will allow runners to further benefit Wiphan. T-shirts, cookbooks and African jewelry will be sold at the market.
