About This Activity

The inaugural World of Mae 5k Run/Walk & 1 mile Kids Fun Run takes place in the scenic and historic Hartwood Acres Park during the gorgeous autumn foliage.  The 5k course winds along a beautiful nature path in which live musicians play every half mile.  All proceeds of this event go to World of Mae, a charitable organization benefitting Ada Mae Grashow, a 6 year old little girl living with Phelan McDermid Syndrom which is a rare genetic disorder.  This time of year sparks the magic in all of us so (friendly) costumes are welcome.  No masks please. This family friendly celebration will include free face painting, a basket raffle, and entertainment throughout the event by a talented hula hoop troop!  World of Mae is highly inclusive so participants of ALL abilities will feel at home and strollers, joggers, wagons, and wheel chairs are very welcome.

Everyone who registers BEFORE October 5th will receive a free World of Mae shirt on October 18th!  Please follow Ada's story at
