About the event

DESCRIPTION Halloween 10K/5K/1K Run Walk Creep Crawl or Roll Benefitting individuals with special needs

This is the first year Welcoming Hearts is adding this Fall/Halloween race through beautiful Gemini Springs, to raise money to support programs for our local special needs community. The 10K and 5K are both USATF certified courses and will be chip timed. PLUS because we're racing around Halloween we're giving away some great prizes for Best Costume and Best Family Costume! 

Welcoming Hearts is a non-profit organization whose mission is to enhance the quality of life for all individuals with special needs by providing information and support to individuals, families, professionals and the community through education and social settings. Since its inception in 2015, Welcoming Hearts has been providing social opportunities for families through playdates, teen club and mom's/dad's nights out.  In addition we have family events for Easter, Summer, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, giving families the opportunity to celebrate when they otherwise wouldn't, due to their children's needs.

Also Welcoming Hearts hosts an annual resource fair, bringing out local organizations and businesses who provide resources or services for the special needs community.  We continue to work on getting resource information into pediatrician/specialists offices to hand out to families in need.  Our long term vision is a facility to allow us to expand our programs to better service the special needs community, like day, after school and summer programs. Thank you for your support!
