About This Activity

The White-Wilson Community Foundation will host the 6th Annual Run for the Health of It 5K/8K on Saturday, March 24th. Participants will take off at 9 a.m. Runners and walkers of all ability levels are invited to participate. Both the race and the after-party are stoller and dog-friendly!

Children ages 6 and under are invited to take part in our inaugural Diaper Dash. Participation in this 100 yard fun-run is only $10 and all children will receive an award at the finish line. The dash will begin at 10:30 a.m.

The race will be followed by an after party at AJ's Oyster Shanty. Participants will enjoy a delicious food and beverages. There will be children's activities including a bounce house, face painting and art stations. Awards will be given for the top three finishers from each 10 year age group.

All proceeds will help provide health services for community members in need. For more information on the White-Wilson Community Foundation and it's work in the community, visit www.whitewilsoncommunityfoundation.org.
