Kids Adventure Challenge
August 18, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmCost: $15
The fifth annual Kids Adventure Challenge (KAC) presented by Gazelle Sports and RunGR will take place August 18 at 6 p.m. at Grand Rapids’ Johnson Park. All event proceeds will benefit GR8 Sports, Great Kids, a program that helps ensure access K-8 students of the Grand Rapids Public Schools to play sports regardless of ability to pay. Most school districts don’t provide elementary programs at all and require that students “pay to play” at any level. For Grand Rapids Public Schools, this is simply not a realistic option. Engaging kids in sports early promotes a healthy lifestyle and reduces injuries.
This year we are so excited to announce our partnership with RunGR. RunGR is proud to help a new generation of runners be out and active in the community through the Kids Adventure Challenge. This partnership provides RunGR and its members the opportunity to participate in an event with their family, while giving back to the community.
Join us on August 18th to raise money for this worthy cause. This event is fun for all ages, kids and adults will have to work together as a team to complete this event.
Registration is limited to the first 500 participants. Registration will close Sunday, August 14th.
This 2-hour adventure race will include multiple challenges and checkpoints geared for kids age 5-12. Your team will navigate throughout Johnson Park and will have to work together to complete this event. To help each team will receive a passport and a map to navigate and keep track of the progress.
With your registration to the Adventure Challenge you will receive:
-A finishers gift
-An entry to the Millennium Park Beach and Splash pad valid August 18-21.
