Join us in a 5k or 1 mile fun run at the beach while supporting Child Guidance Center.  Every runner/walker will receive a shirt, medal, and goodie bag.  At the end of the 5k, there will be a best/funniest hat contest.  One adult will win a $100 gift card and a child under 12 will win a $50 gift card.

If you can’t run or don’t wan’t to run, there are some great options available

You can register using the Take A Nap For The Cause option.  You receive a shirt, medal, and goodie bag, but you don’t have to show up or run.  Just take a nap and help the CGC in the process and get a medal for doing it!

You can also register to sponsor a child or adolescent to run the race.  This is a great way to give someone a chance to particpate and help the CGC in the process. 

Chip Timing

The race will be chip timed using a shoe chip system.   Chips will be distributed at the packet pickup.   All runners must cross the mat at the finish line with their chip properly attached to their shoe to score in the race.  Chips must be returned at the conclusion of the race at the finish line.   Runners not returning chips will be charged a fee of $30.  


This race will benefit Child Guidance Center and the families we serve. For more information, visit www.childguidancecenter.org
