RACE REPORT 2015
Over $5000 raised!
2015 means Athletes In Kind has been helping families struggling with cancer for 10 years. We want to mark this important mile stone by, you guessed it, helping more families through RUNNING!
On Friday, April 24 the 7th annual Mundy Park Charity Trail Race took place. We thought is was going to be a wet one as we experienced every weather pattern under the sun but we LUCKED out!!
Sun and a little warmth for 2 hours!!
Special THANKS to our 50+ volunteers, this RACE happens because they come out to make this the safest race for kids.
Our many Sponsors make it feel like a BIG race and some have been supporting the event for all 7years!!
Though the race is not timed, we still like to recognize some SPEEDY kids out on the course.
