Description of Race Events

Our mission is simple really. We believe that every child deserves a bit of hope, joy, and love. And so, we throw birthday parties for homeless children. And, it's pretty awesome!

The Celebration Project - "because every child deserves to be celebrated" - provides children living in shelters with a birthday party, complete with games, pizza, cake and a personally selected gift for the birthday child.

Come join us at historic Wheeler Farm for a family-friendly fun run and 5K! We invite everyone to run wearing their favorite party attire (don't forget the hat)! Bring an unwrapped new toy to help our funds go further and be entered in our amazing drawings!

Website and flyer will not be open for public viewing until February 15, 2017.

To guarantee a t-shirt, the last day to register is Friday, August 31, 2017. T-shirts for registrations processed after this will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

Registration is $25 for the 5K and $20 for the 1 mile Fun Run. Prices valid through August 31, 2017.
After August 31, 2017, registration will be $35 for 5K and $30 for the 1 mile Fun Run.
Online registration will close Thursday, September 14, 2017

Due to limitations of the facility, we regret that we will NOT be able to process "day of" registrations.

Children (to age 10) participating in the Fun Run will receive a medal for their support and participation! Children over age 10 are encouraged to participate in our 5K and race for a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place medal in these age categories: 10-12, 13-15, and 16-17. Mom and Dad, you can race for a medal too!

Children aged 5 and under can participate for $5 and receive their very own medal!

Sorry, no refunds!

Pickup location to be determined; information will be posted on line by March 1, 2017 and emailed to registered runners.
