5K In the East Bay will be hosting a 5K (3mile) Spring For A Cure Bunny Fun Run at Lake Merritt to raise money for LLS (Leukemia and Lymphoma Society). Please bring your family and friends to support this cause. We encourage people to dress up in fun, colorful, playful (but safe) attire, and have FUN WHILE YOU RUN! If running is not your thing, we do understand, but encourage you to still come out. Come take a stroll with us around the lake, make some new friends, and support a good cause.
There will be a Kids Spring Egg hunt, prior to the beginning of the 5K, and we already have LOTS of prizes! These tickets are sold in donation format. Give as little or as much as you like. Please do register your child if you plan on them particiapting, or email us to let us know if they are going to participate, so that we have an estimated head count.
