Kids are Welcome!
The Toddler Trot and Kids Dash are perfect for your little racers! These short races after the Life Walk let kids get in on the fun of running for Life. Although there is no charge for your small runners to participate, they must be registered and parents must sign a waiver. All children will receive a medal of participation. The top three for each race will receive a trophy at the Awards Ceremony.
Toddler Trot: ages 4 and under
Kids Dash: ages 5-7
Other activities specific for the kids include a playground, bounce house, face painting, and lots of space to run around and explore.
Pro-Tip: All kids need to be registered to participate. Get it out of the way and Pre-Register to shorten your check-in time on W&R day. Then, they can play at the Bounce House or at the playground instead of standing in line.
5k Run? As appropriate, older children are welcome to participate in the 5k Timed Race. They will need to be registered as runners and pay the $45 runner fee. Keep in mind that they will be running alongside adults.
Fundraising: Just like the grown-ups, the kids get their own FundEasy page. This is a great opportunity to get them involved in raising money for a good cause! They can collect loose change at home, do extra chores or for family and friends, or think of other ways to raise funds for the ministry. Check out the Kids Fundraising Tips on our Fundraising page for more ideas.
