DETAILS: Join The Meridian Company for the Little Feats 5K Run/Walk to benefit Mott Children’s Hospital for pediatric brain tumor research. The race benefits children such as Sevren Farhat, who in 2011 was diagnosed with an Optic Pathway Glioma, a slowgrowing, low-grade tumor that had grown on his left optic nerve, and who is being treated at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital.
The course will run through the paved trails of Central Park, Nancy Moore Park and Nemoke Trail. Medals will be awarded to the top three places in each age group as well as the overall winner. Directly following the event, there will be a kid’s “Fun Run,” which will give children the opportunity to win a medal after running around The Meridian complex.
Race day packets can be picked up from Playmakers on Saturday, June 12 from 3p.m. until 6p.m., and onsite the morning of the race beginning at 7a.m. Packets are also available for pickup at The Meridian Company.
