The ninth annual Hot Chocolate 5K Run/Walk, organized by the Seaford Wellness Council, will be held Saturday and will be dedicated to superstorm Sandy victims.

The Run/Walk will start at 9 a.m. just south of Seaford High School at 1575 Seamans Neck Rd.

Entrants will receive hot chocolate, tea, coffee and bagels in the high school cafeteria.

Last year, nearly 1,000 people participated in the event, which is the nonprofit group’s primary fundraiser, organizers said.

This year, at least half of all proceeds raised will go toward relief for Sandy victims. There will also be a donation bin at the event to collect cash, checks or gift cards for families impacted by the storm, organizers said.

Interested participants can sign up for the event for a fee of $20 online or $30 at the high school auditorium the day of the event. For more information, call group president Mike DiSilvio at 516-384-8536 or visit seafordwellness.com.
