The Montessori Academy Fall Frolic is an annual Family Fun Festival charity event featuring a 5K Run and a 5K Walk for both competitive and non-competitive athletes. Fall Frolic benefits children at The Montessori' Academy's classroom at the South Bend Center for the Homeless, the nation's first Montessori program serving homeless children (seriously!). The Fall Frolic will be professionally timed and age group awards will be awarded. The course is flat and fast through beautiful Winding Brook Park in Mishawaka with a great opportunity to PR.

The Pumpkin Path Kids Fun Run & Obstacle Course is back again! The course will be longer, will include more obstacles, and will be in our "backyard" featuring our newly constructed Natural Playscape! This course is great for kids of all ages and will take place at 9:00am - before the 5K starts. The festive course will give everyone an opportunity to cheer on the kids as they run!
