Race For Rare Kids on Lake Michigan is an inclusive 5K race for participants to run, walk, or roll also including a 1K Kids Dash. Race For Rare Kids is dedicated to the education, advocacy, and support of families proud to call someone they love “rare”. We are calling these special people our "VIPs" for the event! Our event hopes to raise awareness for any child (or adult) taking on a unique journey with a different ability, disability, or developmental difference and to raise funding for the non-profit rare disease foundation The TBCK Foundation, which benefits children born with the neuro-genetic disease TBCK Syndrome.
Visit www.tbckfoundation.com for information about The TBCK Foundation. If you have any questions about this race, please contact the race director at firstname.lastname@example.org
Registration is available until August 23 for $25. Late registration after August 24 through Race Day is $30. We may not be able to guarantee t-shirt availability after August 24!
