Whether you’re a family member supporting the kids in your community; a serious runner competing to take home the USATF-certified 5K winner’s trophy; or a weekend jogger looking to get some exercise with friends, the Race for Every Child is an event for everyone in the community. The Race unites the community around a common vision: to help children grow up stronger.
