About This Event
The 7th Annual Sunrise 5K Run is sponsored by Kalamazoo Sunrise Kiwanis. Your local Kiwanis club has been donating to many causes to help educate and keep your children safe for over twenty years. Past projects include donations to Burn Camp, The Backpack Program, Dictionaries to Third Graders, and supporting the local Little League just to name a few. Your registration fee will be used to ensure similar programs will continue receiving support from your community. Thank you again for a great twenty years as always the children appreciate your support!  

Kiwanis is proud to partner with Scholastic, an organization that provides children access to books and promotes a lifelong love of reading. Thanks to our partnership, Kiwanis clubs receive crucial resources for helping children in their communities get access to books and reading opportunities — regardless of socioeconomic status.

Scholastic offers U.S. Kiwanis clubs 6 great in-school programs and packages, and a free online membership to the Family and Community Engagement program to all. FACE supports Read Around the World, Young Children Priority One and other club initiatives.
