Partnership for Strong Families (PSF) is the lead agency for child welfare services for the 13 North Central Florida counties comprising Judicial Circuits 3 and 8. We are charged with providing a full spectrum of child protection services, from child abuse prevention to intervention and foster care to adoption. PSF will be having our third annual “Superhero 5K Family Fun Run/Walk” on November 11, 2017 at Westside Park. All money raised will go toward adoption and recruitment efforts for children awaiting their permanent homes.
Children 5 and under: Free Children ages 6 to 15: $5 per child. Includes a race timing bib for runners and a goodie bag. Children’s T-shirts are available for an additional $5. Ages 16 and Up: $20 per participant. Includes a race t-shirt, timing bib for runners, and a goodie bag.
Race fees are the same whether you run or walk the 5K. Race bibs for timing purposes will only be given out to participants who will be running. Please sign up under the correct category, so we can assure that all runners receive race bibs.
