Bloomsday 2013 Online Registration Is Now Open

SPOKANE, Wash. - There are just over four months until the 37th annual
Lilac Bloomsday Run, and to help fortify New Year's resolutions to get
in shape, early bird registration for Bloomsday is now open at
www.bloomsdayrun.org. Those who sign up by February 10th will have a
chance to win one of three Apple iPad minis courtesy of Strong
Solutions-1718 E. Sprague.

"Don't procrastinate" advises Lilac Bloomsday Association President
Steven Jones. "Use your early Bloomsday registration as an incentive to
becoming fit or fitter. Sign up now and chart your course for a great
Bloomsday and a healthy 2013. Of course, winning an iPad mini would be
pretty cool too."

Everyone who enters Bloomsday online through February 10th will be
automatically entered in the iPad mini drawing. The iPad minis are being
offered by Strong Solutions-an Apple Authorized Reseller and Service
Provider. Strong Solutions specializes in sales, service and repair of
Apple products, also offering classes, in-home and on-site service,
consulting and solutions.

Those signing up for Bloomsday will also have the opportunity to add a
donation to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Family Outreach Center (the MLK
Center), which has been selected as Bloomsday's official charity for
2013. The MLK Center improves the quality of life for children, youth
and families in Spokane through an array of culturally responsive
educational and social services within the framework of Dr. King's
vision of equal respect, treatment and accessibility for all people.

"Bloomsday is proud to have the MLK Center as its official charity in
2013," says Jones. "The work the Center does to make Spokane a better
place is to be celebrated. We hope that Bloomsday entrants will
recognize the importance of the MLK Center by providing a donation with
their entries."

Bloomsday '13 will be Sunday, May 5, 2013. Full details of the 37th
annual event will be released in early March, at which time printed
entry forms will be available at locations throughout the Inland
Northwest.
