Kids Run Long Island, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the health and fitness of all children on Long Island, will be holding its first fundraiser this spring- a KIDS FUN RUN SERIES- 3 races on 3 Sundays for kids ages 4 to 12 years old.
The races will take place on Sunday, May 15th, Sunday, May 22 and Sunday, June 5, 2016 at 5pm at the Grange Park in Sayville NY. There will be 3 distances for the kids to run based on their age: 200 yards for ages 4 to 6 yrs old, half mile for ages 7 to 9 years old and one and half miles for ages 10 to 12 years old.
The race day events begin with bib pick up from 4 to 4:30pm. Opening ceremonies are at 4:55pm and the first race begins at 5pm sharp. “We want to make this a fun, non-competitive event where kids know the goal is to try their best and feel good about completing each race.” says Executive Director Kiersten Bartolotta about the running series. “Most importantly, we want to see everyone smiling at the finish line.”
Registration fees, which include participation in all three races, an event t-shirt, bib, ribbons and a finishing medal upon completion, range from $34 for advanced registration to $38 for late registration. Space is limited and advanced registration is required.
