Supporting Youth Education!
The Running Scared 5k was first started in 2008 and benefits Youth Education. To date approximately $320,000 has been raised to help children in the Cincinnati Valley area.
Since we cannot gather together as a group for 2020, we are offering a Virtual Challenge. You can participate on your favorite course route and post your results here. You are not limited to a 5K. Run or Walk any distance you wish. We will combine the distances of all participants. Our goal is to log 1000 total miles. Help us to reach our goal.
