About This Activity

This USATF certified race course features an out and back course that starts and ends at Declan’s Playground at Harmon Park. Our family friendly event has great food, prizes and fun for participants of all ages, strollers and dogs welcomed. Timing for the event is being provided by Trivium Racing, and awards will be given in the 5K for the top three overall male and female runners and the top three runners for eight designated age groups. Last year more than $1,000 in prizes was awarded to the top finishers and for door prizes.
The Declan Donoghue Foundation was started in memory of Declan Nicholas Donoghue, who passed away on September 2, 2010 at the age of two of a rare immune genetic disorder, which was not diagnosed until after his death. The foundation’s mission is to celebrate the memory and spirit of Declan, by funding and creating places for children to play. To date, the Declan Donoghue Foundation has built five, commercial grade playgrounds at Harmon Park and Ivy M Redmon Sports Complex, both located in Kernersville, and Marylene F. Griffin Recreation Center and Lindley Park located in Greensboro and Johnson Street Sports Complex in High Point. The goal of this years race is to raise funds to build a six playground in honor of Declan. The location is undetermined at this time. In addition, the foundation supports the Kernersville Parks and Recreation department with our Spirit of Play Scholarship to offer camp tuition to those who would otherwise not be able to attend camps.
