About This Activity

Bree';z Through the Shores 5K Fun Run / Healthy Kids Day Event

Breeana Dixit was a beautiful, outgoing, fun-loving, young woman who enjoyed running and spending time with her family and friends. She chose to work with children at both the Lakeshore Family YMCA and Appletree Christian Learning Center. She lost her life way too early in a horrible accident. To honor Bree, we are dedicating the healthy kids day event at the YMCA to her. We want everyone to join us in a 5K fun run that will take place in the subdivision behind the YMCA. There will also be a field day with tons of fun activities for parents and their children, as well as lots of great prizes from local companies to be raffled off! Each 5K participant will receive tickets with their packet to choose which prize they would like the chance to win. Even if you have never done a 3.1 mile run before, this event is for beginner walkers and advanced runners! It will not be timed this year. If you don';t want to run/walk, just come and join in on all the fun activities we will have. This day is about remembering Bree and all the wonderful things she did while she was with us. We want to keep her spirit alive by giving back to the wonderful organizations she loved to work with. All proceeds from our fun filled day will go to The Ted Lindsday Foundation for Autism and The Strong Kids Campaign.

If you do not sign up in time to receive a t-shirt with your registration, you can purchase one on the day of the event.
