Our 1st Annual Ready, Set, Go...Run 5K and Kids4Kids1K on Sunday, September 15, 2019, will be a fun, family-friendly, timed running and walking event. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Eastside Baby Corner and in support of their back-to-school Ready, Set, Go campaign. Runners and walkers of all abilities welcome to participate! Ready, Set, Go...Run is also the 1st race in the Bellevue Holiday 5K Series in Lake Hills. Run one race or run them all!
About Eastside Baby Corner's Ready, Set, Go Campaign
Every fall thousands of kids in our community head back to school. For just a moment, imagine you are one of them, starting a new class and meeting new friends. There is so much excitement and activity around you, but you are anxious and uncomfortable. You don't have a backpack like the girl sitting next to you. You're worried someone will notice you didn't bring anything with you or that you don’t have a coat.
For many families in our community struggling to make ends meet, the cost of clothing, school supplies, and hygiene items is an ongoing challenge. You can help a child be ready to learn, ready to succeed. Help provide the items kids need for school readiness and confidence - clothing, underwear, shoes and pants that fit, backpacks and school supplies.
You can join in creating a brighter future for local children and our community
