The Healthy Kids Running Series kicked off the first of their "10 Fest" meets as part of their ten year celebration.
The Healthy Kids Running Series (HKRS) is a national, community-based non-profit that provides a fun, inclusive, five-week running series for ages 2-14 designed to get kids active, experience accomplishment and lay the foundation for a healthy lifestyle. HKRS encourages kids to adopt a “Get Up and Go!” attitude.
As you can see by the expression on their faces these kids had an afternoon of competition and fun. Besides the cool t-shirt there were games, entertainment, special guests, and interactive activities!
