Kids Can Run, Too!

Toddler Trot: ages 3 and under

Preschool Gallop: ages 4-5

Kids Dash: ages 6-7

The Walk and Run for Life has just what you need for your little racers! Our short children’s races 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 need to sign a waiver. All children will receive a medal of participation. Plus, the top three winners for each race will receive a trophy at the Awards Ceremony.

All kids need to be registered to participate. Families are encouraged to pre-register before the event. Check-in (for pre-registered runners) and walk-up registration at the event begins at 9am. Races begin at 9:45am. Please allow time to register your kiddo before the race!

Other activities specific for the kids include a playground, face painting, and lots of space to run around and explore.

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 Awards for Kids!

All fundraising kiddos will be eligible for the annual Youth LifeSaver Award (for ages 12 and under) or Teen LifeSaver Award (for ages 13-18)!!  Fundraising kids must have their own FundEasy page, so they can track their own fundraising progress separately from the rest of the family. To do this, register each fundraising child separately, and help them set up their unique FundEasy pages. For help, reach out to this year’s coordinator.
