“We are planning a 5K with every runner and walker in mind,” said Development Director Chris Fowler. “I'm excited to see that several competitive racers have already signed up and just as excited to see entire families planning to run and walk in the 5K and Fun Run.  With Kidsbloom taking place after the race, we are looking forward to hosting two fun events for the entire family.”
