Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County has been operating in the Glades since 1994 and today we encompass six school-based sites and an independent facility serving over 1,200 youth. We serve youth age 6 to 18 with a wide variety of outcome driven programs designed to increase their academic, health and character development while providing a safe, fun and constructive alternative to street life or sitting at home alone. The Clubs offer an array of diverse, award-winning programs that help shape our young adults into productive citizens.
The Boys & Girls Clubs provide quality programs with a special emphasis on disadvantaged youth regardless of race, creed, or socioeconomic background. Many of our youth comes from broken homes and our centers are a haven for them. This is only made possible through the generous funding we receive from members of our community and the citizens of Palm Beach County like you.
The Boys & Girls Club of Palm Beach County will be hosting a 5K Splash Run where runnings runners will have an opportunity to run an outlined course. While running the outlined course, the runners will be splashed with water at various checkpoints throughout the course. This 5K Splash Run is an event that is geared towards helping the Boys & Girls Club of the Glades area to be able to continue the work that we do. The funds that will be raised will help to be able to provide the members of the clubs with the neseccary resources to help the children in the Glades area remain off the streets and to avoid trouble. By signing up and participating in the run you will be donating to help all the members and clubs.
Thank you for your participation in the race and we look forward to seeing you in the SPLASH ZONE!
