Calling all kids under 10 years of age! No need to register, just show up at the Mess Hall ready to run a little ½ mile course. All kids will receive a treat as they cross the finish line. There is no charge for the Kids Fun Run but we will be collecting gently used or new children’s running shoes that will be donated to the Brighton Center in memory of Al Salvato to encourage our youth to pick up running at an early age.
