About This Activity

5K For The Kids is a grassroots fundraising event to help support and raise awareness for kids with cancer. Started by the Shelly Roberts Circle of Love in 2012, 5K For The Kids is a family friendly run/walk benefitting various non-profit organizations that help support kids and families facing childhood cancer. Fighting childhood cancer is a heartrenching battle, with kids undergoing lengthy hospital stays, high dose chemotherapy and radiation, surgeries, blood transfusions, bone marrow transplants, and the list goes on and on. 100% of the money raised by 5K For The Kids goes directly towards supporting these brave kids through these hard times, helping to make their dark times a little brighter.

We hope you will join us in helping these brave kids. If these kids can fight cancer, we can come together and help make a difference for them.

5K/10K Run/Walk: 7:30 AM

1 Mile Fun Run: 7:40 AM -- The 1 Mile Fun Run is for children under the age of  14. This run will be supervised by certified child care workers who will run with the kids and then take them to the Kid's Zone immediately afterwards where there will be a bounce house, games, and food.

Supervised Child Care at the Kid's Zone

Immediately after the 1 Mile Fun Run, there will be certified child care workers to supervise all children with fun activities (bounce house, games, etc.) This allows parents who want to participate in the 5K/10K to do so knowing that their child is supervised and happy while they are walking/running.


The race will officially be timed using chip timing by  ExcelSports. The chips are non-disposable so they will need to be picked up on the morning of the race. Chip pickup will be from 5:30 AM - 6:50  AM. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT ALL TIMING CHIPS BE RETURNED IMMEDIATELY  UPON COMPLETION OF THE RACE.


If you register by February 8, you will receive a free  Official Event T-Shirt. T-Shirts will also be available for purchase on  the day of the event for $10 (cash and check only)
