ISF 5K/10K & Fun Run for Kid’s Cancer has become a family favorite event in Charlotte and a great way to spend your morning with friends and family while making an impact on kids fighting cancer! Our flagship event was started in honor of one girl’s fight and it inspires us to see our community rally behind us to make this day bigger every year. There will be a 5k and 10k course, along with a one-mile fun run. Run, walk, skip or dance your way through the finish line… we don’t care which you do, we just want you to join us! In addition to our running options, your kids can tire themselves out in the kid’s zone, you can munch on the newly added brunch yummies and browse through the selection of fun raffle items onsite. Register today and encourage your friends, families, and co-workers to do the same!
Race participants will receive a t-shirt, official racing bib with microchip timing system, and our fun run participants will receive a kids ISF cinch bag. Prizes will be given to the winners for specific age categories.
