The Freedom Run & Walk, a 10K race, the 2-mile fun run and walk, the Tot Trot and Kids ½ K are set for Saturday, June 26, in downtown Greensboro.
A highlight of this year's event is the addition of Miles for Smiles,a group started by local running enthusiast Janelle Robinson that matches runners with special-needs children, so kids can experience participating in a road race. The runners do the actual running – pushing the children in jogging strollers – and the kids will do the smiling.
“It’s great to have “Miles for Smiles” as part of our Freedom Run and Walk”’ says Mebane Ham, Coordinator. “We are looking forward to lots of fun and smiles for all in downtown
Anyone interested in participating through Miles for Smiles, please contact Janelle Robinson.
On the Mark Sports will provide electronic timing finish line services for the 10K Freedom Run only.
