Fundraising is a great way to support SCAN and to get others involved that may not wish to participate in the 5K! All proceeds from the event support SCAN’s mission to protect children, prepare parents, strengthen families, and educate the community to Stop Child Abuse and Neglect. You can fundraise as a team or individual. Click HERE to set up your fundraising page or to contribute to a fundraising page. The team or individual that raises the most money will be recognized at the event and will receive a prize. Starting a fundraising page does not register you for the event. You must register HERE to participate in the 5K.
There will be a free kids run for children 10 and under at 7:30pm at the race site. The distance will be 50-100 yards. There is no registration required and all finishers will receive a cool medal. An annoucement will be made and those wishing to participate will report to the designated place inside Johnny Appleseed Park.
