Leaving from Townsend Park, participants can choose either a 2k or 5k walking or running route.

There will be awards, entertainment and refreshments, as well as face painting and a magic show.

Registration is just $15, but it’s free if individuals raise more than $100. Family teams and community teams are also welcome to take part.
