Looking to get out and enjoy the fresh air and warm weather this weekend? How about signing up for the Kicks for Kids RGI River Run/Walk?
Kicks For Kids ‘ (KFK) 15th Annual RGI River Run returns this Saturday and proceeds will support KFK’s efforts to “level the playing field” for local children who are challenged physically, mentally or by the environment in which they live. A portion of the funds raised will also assist three of KFK’s long-standing partners: the Aaron W. Perlman Center and Division of Child Life (both located at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital) and Covington Partners in Prevention.
It’s not to late to register for this great event! You can actually sign up on Race-Day at the Purple People Bridge (near Newport On The Levee). Not only will you be running or walking for a good cause, the RGI River Run is also a TON of fun. They’ll have the awesome band Doghouse performing, bagels from Panera Bread and First Watch will be cooking pancakes for all participants and Starbucks will serve coffee! It goes on… for participating you’ll also get a “goodie bag” which will include product samples, free food certificates and a ticket good for free food and drink at the post-event party at Arnie’s on the Levee!
So, sound like something you’d be interested in? Here’s the race/walk schedule:
- Special K – 9:15 AM
- 5K Run/Walk – 9:30 AM
- Children’s Fun Run – 10:30 AM.
