Planting flowers at the Children's Festival

Beyond the Finish Line:

Thank You for Supporting ChildServe's Run, Walk & FUN 4 the Kids!

ChildServe's 2016 Run, Walk and FUN 4 the Kids was a blast! Despite the heat advisory for the day, over 1,000 participants, volunteers, donors and staff registered for and supported the event.

We had an enthusiastic group of runners and walkers complete the 1-mile course. Congratulations to our winners Andrew Hamer (1st place - Men; Time 5:10) and Jessica Weis (First Place - Women; Time 6:36.) This year's finish line festival included face painting, spin art, games, coloring, and the ever-popular dunk tank. The Johnston Kiwanis served a delicious pancake breakfast, and as always, the children's races were enjoyed by young and old alike.

The nearly $30,000 in proceeds from this year's run are being used to fund summer activities for the children we serve. On behalf of the many children who will benefit, we are gratified that the community shows such strong commitment to our mission.

Congratulations to the top finishers and thanks to all participants!
