ChildServe‘s annual Run, Walk & FUN 4 the Kids will be held Saturday, June 10, at ChildServe in Johnston. The event kicks off with a 5K or 1 mile run/walk perfect for setting a new personal best or enjoying a leisurely stroll with family and friends.

After the race, our free Finish Line Festival includes a pancake breakfast, dunk tank, face painting, music, crafts, carnival games, and more! Kids of all abilities can join our free Children’s Fun Runs to earn a ChildServe medal. Register for the event by June 9 to receive the early registration pricing.

Proceeds from the Run, Walk, & Fun 4 the Kids help fund ChildServe‘s summer activities and programs for children with special healthcare needs. By joining us for the run, you enable kids to join in typical summer activities like going to baseball games, the zoo, the pool, summer camp, Adventureland, and more!
