Kids' Games

Kids’ Sprint, Kids’ Relay, and Kids’ Obstacle Course races will begin at about 5:00 p.m.


--May I have a team of less than four?

Yes, you do not have to have four to participate. One person can run/walk multiple legs of the relay. So you could have a team of 1, 2, 3, or 4. Last year we had several run the whole 10 miles by themselves. Others teams ran with two or three. Discounts are available for teams of one or two. You would not be able to meet the requirements for Coed, however, without four on a team.

--What if I want to run or walk on a team but don’t have a team?

Send an email to keith@lexingtonavenue or post on the facebook and we will get you connected with others looking for a team. Let us know if you plan to run or walk.

--May walkers walk together as a team or do we have to take turns.

Yes walkers may walk together and for the sake of time are encouraged to do so. Your team’s time, if you are interested, will be multiplied by four.

Benefiting African Refugees in Morocco

Many Sub-Saharan Africans fleeing war, extreme poverty, political and religious persecution, and famine, cross the desert and end up in Morocco in a desperate and seemingly hopeless situation. The Protestant Church of Morocco, made up primarily of African students, seeks to minister to these refugees by providing start-up funds for micro-businesses, skills training, scholarships, food, and other forms of assistance. These busy students work diligently to help bring hope to weary African refugees. Your participation in this event will help.

Our friends of the Protestant Church of Morocco will use profits from this Relay--every penny of it--assisting refugees in a desperate situation (Only a few leaders in Morocco are paid a meager salary by the church and the workers throughout Morocco are volunteers).

With your registration fee and donations you are providing the following:

refugee food 10633271_657485971025807_91463182943677193_o-1.jpg

1. Food bags (flour, rice, oil, sardines, sugar)

2. Blankets

3. Scholarships

4. Professional Training (so that refugees can learn skills to provide for themselves)

5. Micro Business Projects (so that refugees can use their skills to provide for themselves)

You will have the option of choosing which of the above services your registration will go to support.
