Kids in Action 5k Race


The Kids in Action 5K race is the culmination of many hours of training and hard work. Our kids have made a goal of running in our 5k race and each of these kids has been mentored and supported through the Kids In Action program. Kids across Alberta have been running, sweating, and getting faster all year. We invite you to come and celebrate with our athletes as they reach this goal. We are looking for running and race support volunteers for this event. Our goal is to pair each elementary school athlete with an adult runner; a personal cheerleader for each step of the race. We are also looking for volunteers to fill race support positions such as race marshaling, food preparation, registration and more!
