Love Fund 5K race set for Aug. 23
The Love Fund 5K Run/Family Walk will take place at 8 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 23, two miles east of the Plaza, beginning at Brush Creek Community Center.
More than 700 runners and walkers participated in last year's event, which benefits the FOX 4 Love Fund. The Love Fund provides essential services to qualifying children ages 18 and under. Referrals come from social workers, teachers, counselors or clergy when needs cannot be met by other organizations. The Love Fund works through these third-party referrals to verify the child's level of need and to ensure all possible resources have been exhausted. Assistance by the Love Fund comes in a variety of ways, from new clothing to a life-saving surgery.
Cost of the event is $30 per person age 13 and older and $20 per person age 12 and younger for the 5K. Cost for the one-mile fun run is $15. Kids 10 and younger are free.
