JOIN US for the 5th Annual KIDS Charity Run/Walk
Do the best you can (getting donations), and then join us on May 17th to see how many laps you can run/walk around the track.
If you get any “per lap” donations, then the more laps you do = more money for your charity!
Example: Grandpa donated $1 per lap. I ran/walked 9 laps. I need to collect $9 from Grandpa
Hi, my name is Morgan. I am 13-years-old. I started this event five years ago and am very excited that it gets bigger and bigger each year 🙂 I got the idea for this event because I was too young to run in an adult charity run that my mother was doing….. so… I created my own event.
I am challenging kids at an early age to stop and look at the world around them. This Run/Walk is an opportunity for KIDS – to help anyone or anything in this world & it doesn’t matter what it is. Everyone is different and they should have an opportunity to have an opinion about what they are interested in – even at age 5, or age 6, or beyond. I want to help young kids realize that it doesn’t matter how old you are… Even Kids can make a difference in this world!
It’s okay to be a kid… but it’s also okay, even at a young age, to be empathetic, a good citizen, and to learn to “give” instead of only receive. “Giving” and “helping” feels good – and – it can be fun!
