Take part in a Bowling Green running tradition, and support a great cause at the 17th annual Total Fitness Connection’s Run & Walk for Children to benefit the Family Enrichment Center. This event supports child abuse prevention and has something for the entire family. You can run a half marathon, run or walk a 5k, or flex your muscles in the 5k pump & run. The event will take place at Basil Griffin Park on March 23.
Pre-race festivities include a pasta party, expo, children’s activities, and a silent auction on March 22 at Total Fitness Connection on Three Springs Rd. Event participants who register before February 22 will be guaranteed a race T-shirt and a free pasta party ticket. Families, businesses, charity organizations, and church groups are encouraged to participate in the event together by forming a team. New this year: raise $50 or more (in addition to your event fee) for the Family Enrichment Center, and you’ll receive a special edition tech shirt.
This is a very affordable event, with entry costs of $30 for the mini marathon and $20 for the 5k. Register online at Active.com by March 20. You can find more information at runwalkky.com, Facebook.com/RunWalkForChildren, or Twitter.com/RunWalkKY.
