April showers bring May flowers and the start of run/walk/roll fundraisers. Combining a worth-while cause with fitness and the great outdoors is way to stay in shape as much as it is an opportunity to lend your time and financial support to groups you believe in – toss in a few prizes and other activities and the whole family can make a day of it.
That’s what the Sixth Annual A Kid Again 5K Run/Walk is hoping you’ll do.
“A Kid Again provides fun-filled activities for children with life threatening illnesses and their families, all year long,” according to an event announcement.
The group, formerly known as Adventures For Wish Kids, “strives to enrich the lives of children with life threatening illnesses and their families by providing healing times of respite through our fun-filled group activities and destination events, which we call adventures.”
The registration fee is $25 pre-race day and $30 day of race. Proceeds will support A Kid Again.
Prizes will be awarded to:
- The team with the most team members
- The team that raises the most money
- The team with the best name
The event begins at 8:30 a.m. on May 30 at Kings Island. And for this race, early registration is its own reward – the first 500 people to register will get into Kings Island free the day of the event.
