COLONIE — The 15th Annual Crossings 5K Challenge & Kids Runs is set for Sunday, Sept. 30 at the Rudy A. Ciccotti Family Recreation Center.
All proceeds benefit the Colonie Youth Center scholarship assistance program helping to make Ciccotti Center memberships and school-age childcare programs available to all families.
The 5K course, which starts and ends behind the Ciccotti Center located at 30 Aviation Road, runs completely inside the Crossings of Colonie Park.
The kids competitive one-mile and quarter-mile fun run are held immediately following the 5K.
The Kids Zone will be back with plenty of activities to keep children entertained and some of our sponsors will be on hand to share information about the services they provide within our community.
The Kids Zone will open at 9 a.m. with a host of activities and the Kids Runs will start at approximately 10:15 a.m. Children through age 13 can register for a quarter-mile fun run or the competitive one-mile run.
The competitive registration fee is $10 and includes a free short sleeve cotton event t-shirt while supplies last. The fun run is free with the option of including an event t-shirt for a $10 donation while supplies last.
Every child that registers for either of the Kids Runs will be entered in our drawing to win a pool party for up to 20 guests at the Ciccotti Center.
The Crossings 5K Challenge & Kids Runs event is an opportunity for CYC and the business community to join together to promote running — and walking — as a fun course to health and wellness.
