About This Activity

Come join us for a morning of fun at Lake Olmstead for our Annual Great Pumpkin Chase 5k!  This event is for all ages and all levels of runners!  We will have prizes for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place finishers in different age groups!  Stay around for our free 1/4 mile tot trot after the race!

This race is one of our major fundraising events each year.  All proceeds from this event are used to support our Visitation Program.  The purpose of the Visitation Program is to provide a safe and secure environment where children who are in foster care or shelters can have state required visits with their parents under the supervision of our trained and caring staff.

It is truly a dark time in a child’s life when they are separated from their parents, even under the best of circumstances.  Kids Restart Inc. tries to shine a little light on these unfortunate children by providing safe, secure, visitation, which includes structured activities designed to strengthen child-parent bonds and develop positive parental skills.  With your help, Kids Restart will continue to serve these children and their families in an effort to stop the cycle of abuse and neglect.  You can make a difference!
