Registration starts at 7:30 am and the race begins at 9:00 am. All proceeds support SRVS Kids & Families (SKF), a program of SRVS which offers early intervention and therapies, family support groups and an inclusive preschool to children with developmental delays. SKF equips families to meet the daily challenges of children with special needs through a nurturing environment that fosters individuality and independence.

Children with special needs will have their own age group categories. All children who finish the fun run will receive a ribbon. This is a USA Track and Field certified course and Memphis Runners Track Club sanctioned event allowing your name to be in the Tennessee State Record books.
