About the event

The Wellness Expo portion of the event is free and open to the public.

The 5K run/walk will raise funds to benefit the MUCS Children's Health Wellness Works Program (formerly known as Heart Health).  Come run or walk a USATF-certified 5K course to help us in our work of supporting healthy lifestyle habits for kids and their families. We also have a lot of exciting raffle prizes to offer, so bring cash or a card to purchase raffle tickets and participate in the drawing after the race (no checks will be accepted).

Your registration fee includes a t-shirt, a race packet with exciting freebies, water, and healthy snacks. We also offer official timing and overall/age-group awards (three deep)! A finisher's medal will be given to all who complete the entire 5K course. The Wellness Expo, day-of registration, and on-site packet pick-up, begin at 8:00 am, group warm-up kicks off at 8:50 am, and the run/walk starts at 9:00 am. The expo, prize raffle, age-group awards, and healthy snacks will follow!


Wellness Works Program Information

MUSC Children's Health Wellness Works program (formerly called Heart Health) is a weight management program and lipid clinic for kids and teens. We work with kids and their families to promote healthy habits through individualized clinic visits, group education sessions, and a fitness program. We have had fantastic success and we currently have over 400 families enrolled from the greater Charleston area! Since we are a non-profit program, we rely heavily on fundraising events that also promote our healthy message through exercise and other health promotion activities.

Thank you so much for your support of these children and their families and for helping us Build Healthy Communities!  More information can be found on our website at and our Facebook page at
