The IM OK "In Memory of Kaden" 5K Run/Walk was created in memory of 9 year old Kaden Smith who passed away as a result of a fatal seizure in August 2010. Join us as we raise awareness about epilepsy - a commonly misunderstood condition. 100% of the proceeds will benefit the programs & services of the Epilepsy Foundation Central & South Texas.
A full morning of fun, including competitive runners, families, strollers & dogs, and live music! Be there to connect with old friends, meet new ones, enjoy a great pre-walk rally, and cheers at the finish line. After, enjoy live music, great food and family fun as we celebrate Kaden's life at the first ever IM OK Fun Fest following the race!
Runners will enjoy a breathtaking 3.1 mile competitive chip-timed run through the tree-lined backdrop of Old Settler's Park in Round Rock. Walkers will enjoy a leisurely stroll through the park! You can choose from the 5K route (3.1 miles) or the shortcut route. Strut your stuff and raise awareness! Don't want to get up at the crack of dawn? No worries, there's a place for you too! Join us as a "sleep for a cause" Virtual Walker. Help the cause without missing a wink of sleep!
Medals will be awarded to the top three male and female 5K runners in each category. Team prizes will be awarded for the biggest team, the most money raised, and the most team spirit.
5K Age Categories: Ages 7 and unders, 8-14, 15-18, 19-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+.
