Those interested in participating in the Independent Health Foundation Kids Run on June 6 have until Wednesday to register.
The run – which is free – sets off at 9 a.m. Saturday, June 6, near the Buffalo Zoo parking lot in Delaware Park.
It includes a mini-dash for children ages 2 to 5 and a 1.8-mile run/walk for all ages. In addition, participants can register as a team, create custom team shirts and purchase custom road signs to cheer on a team or runner.
“We’re excited to hold our 27th Kids Run, which has grown from hundreds of participants to thousands who continue to embrace our healthy and fun event,” Carrie Meyer, executive director of the Independent Health Foundation, said in a news release. “We encourage everyone to come out, rain or shine. Our hope is by holding events like Kids Run for the community, we can help instill healthy habits in families and kids that will play out in their daily lives.”
All participants are required to preregister using the entry form at independenthealth.com/kidsrun or sign up at any Wegmans supermarket. Completed registration forms should be postmarked or submitted online by Wednesday.
