About This Activity

The Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro west invite you to participate in the 2nd Annual "5K For The Kids" race to raise money for sustaining a safe environment, as well as supplying sports equipment and providing memberships for children in the area. 
The race will take place at Algonquin Regional High School on November 7th, 2015. Along the way you will be showered in various colors of chalk. Starting with a white t-shirt and ending with a rainbow one, this event is suited for all! Men, women, and kids of all ages are encouraged to come support the cause, in hopes of keeping organizations, such as The Boys and Girls Clubs, functioning and safe environments with sufficient equipment and supplies for years to come. 
The first 100 to show up on race day will receive a free t-shirt! Following the race, there will be a barbecue with music and other festivities!
