Jumpstart Spark a Life 5Kin United States at Flat Branch Park
Online registration is closed for this category.
Join us to put children first. The scientists, teachers, entrepreneurs, and leaders of tomorrow are getting their start today. But not all children begin the race on equal footing. We can change this. Jumpstart helps to close the gap that children living in poverty face when entering school. We serve preschool children living with limited resources - those who need a "jumpstart" the most - teaching them the vital language and literacy and social-emotional skills they need to succeed in kindergarten and beyond.
|Race Day Regitration|
Registration begins at 9:30. The race begins at 10:00. Everyone must register when they arrive. At registration there is an opportunity to enter raffles for a few prizes valued at $200 or more! Bring cash to buy raffle tickets.
