The Queen City Foundation 5k Challenge helps provide support for kids here in the Greater Cincinnati Area. Last year marked our second 5k race fundraiser, which is the beginning of another financial stream to better our kids for the future and to be the educational bridge for their futures. Our sponsors, partners, walkers and runners will continue to help provide programs, resources and scholarships for our grade school kids up to our seniors on their way to college.
