About This Activity

The 12th annual Children's Home Society of Florida "For the Love of Children 5K" will be held at Okeeheelee Park-Micanopy Pavilion. The event is not just any run, but a run for kids and parents! The 5K will begin at 7:30am and will end with a birthday bash to celebrate our 50 years in Palm Beach County, serving the most vulnerable children in Palm Beach County. We will have a BBQ and birthday cake along with a KIDS FUN ZONE with demonstrations from Palm Beach County Fire Rescue’s fire trucks and Trauma Hawk helicopter. Bring the kids out for a morning of food, fun and family time! A live broadcast from WRMF 97.9 and our Honorary Chair Tracy St. George.

We will host a Kids Fun Run at 8:15am which is free for all kids 9 and under. For more information visit
