The Saturday Slip N Slide 5K Run/Walk is held each year in conjunction with the Saturday Slip N Slide event at Rosewood Park in Jenison. The Run raises money to support Kids Hope USA, helping at-risk children right here in our neighborhoods. From the dedicated runner to the morning walker, this run is for you. The Saturday Slip N Slide 5K Run will begin at Rosewood Park, where you’ll see preparations underway for the Saturday Slip N Slide event later that day, and will take you through the surrounding neighborhoods. Cheer teams from locals schools will cheer you on along the route and may even provide some relief from the heat with squirt guns! When you cross the finish line you’ll be able to kick off your shoes and take the first slide down the giant water slides! Wagons and strollers are welcome, but we ask that you leave your pets at home.
