Back again in 2019!

  • Kids Run - a short run for the youngest runners out there. Held prior to the 5K start, this dash will have kids finishing at the 5K start right at the Honda Marysville dealership.
  • Virtual Run - Can’t participate in Run 4 Kids 2019 but would still like to be a champion for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation? We've got something for you! Virtual runners are entitled to most of the same perks as regular Run 4 Kids participants (T-Shirt and other race incentives) but will NOT be issued a race # or will be eligible for the Weekend giveaway car raffle (must be present to win). Virtual participants CAN pick up during early packet pickup. If you are a virtual participant and cannot make the early packet pickup, t-shirt and medal pickup for virtual runners will also be at Honda Marysville beginning July 14 at 12 pm.
Early Packet Pickup

Bib numbers and t-shirts can be picked up early at the Honda Marysville auto dealership on Wednesday, July 10 (11a-6p) or Thursday, July 11 (11a-6p). Race day pickup will also be available at the dealership beginning at 530p.

Running on a team

This year we are again giving runners the option to run for a “Star” which is a child we have lost, who is currently fighting a brain tumor or has recovered from a brain tumor. You can help by rocking their team colors on race day. If you register by the June 16th deadline, you will receive the color shirt for the team you register for. But don’t be late!! Supplies of team shirts are limited and are only available on an early registration basis. After June 16th, white shirts (representing all kids) will be the standard t-shirt color regardless of team selection.

The team t-shirt colors are as follows:

Please note: due to t-shirt ordering deadlines, after June 16th at 5pm all participants can register for whichever team they like but will receive the "I Run For All Kids - WHITE Shirts" team by default.

Medals and Awards

All participants will receive a finisher medal upon completion of the event. Top 3 M/F get plaques and other top age group finishers will get medals.

Check out the draft art of the medal below, and then sign up today to make sure you're set to get one on race day!

More About the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation

Why Was The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation Formed?

When the PBTF was created in 1991, the diagnosis of a brain tumor was virtually a death sentence for a child. Because there was very little research being done into the disease, most treatments were ineffective or harsh, and most children did not survive into adulthood. The PBTF has worked hard to change that reality by funding research to develop new, less invasive therapies that ultimately extend the lives of children. It is this research that will eventually lead to a cure for this most devastating of childhood cancers!
