10th Annual 5k for Kelli

August 20 @ 9:00 am

Presented by the Breast Wishes Foundation
Join us in remembering the life of Kelli James and honoring all the breast cancer survivors, the fighters and the love ones we’ve lost. 100% of proceeds go to granting wishes for women with breast cancer through the Breast Wishes Foundation.

The 5k for Kelli Run/Walk is a super fun event for the whole family. It is a 3.1 mile out and back course that begins and ends next to Wegerzyn Gardens and winds along the beautiful Stillwater River. Because Kelli loved fairies, we encourage everyone to dress up in tutus, wings, and flower crowns. No fairy gear? No problem! We have everything you need at the merchandise tent with all proceeds going to Breast Wishes Foundation. We also offer free fairy face painting and colored hair spraying!
Registration and Merchandise tents will open at 7:30 am.

Event Fees: Registration only $25! (Register by August 7th to guarantee a super-soft and comfy t-shirt)

Online registration ends on August 16th, sign up in person at Georges Thursday and Friday or at the event on race day.

Awards: Be sure to bring a few extra dollars to buy some raffle tickets. Our top prize is $1,000 cash!

We will give medals, pint glasses and gift cards to the Top 3 Male and Female overall and the Top 3 Male and Female in each age category.
