Submitted by Sandy Brown

The City of Central Kiwanis Club will be hosting its first annual GET FIT CENTRAL Fun Run / Expo on Saturday, October 16, 2010, from 7 am to noon.  All proceeds from the event will be used to purchase much needed playground equipment for Bellingrath Hills and Tanglewood Elementary schools.

          GET FIT CENTRAL activities will include a 1-mile Fun Run, Run-a-thon races for elementary and middle school students, and competition relays for high school students and adults.  Other activities, focused on our children’s health, safety and well-being, will include a Kids ID Program, First Aid Response, Fire Safety Training.  And just for fun, there will be inflatables, a balloon artist, a face painter, and refreshments.

          Our students will soon be receiving pledge forms to collect donations on behalf of their classrooms.

          You can participate in many ways:

  • Register for the Fun Run, with an entry fee of $30, including a t-shirt. Registration deadline for the Fun Run is October 1, 2010.
  • Register your organization’s team for the relay competition.  Registration deadline is October 1, 2010.
  • Sponsor the event, with donations of $100 and up, and receive recognition that ties you to this worthwhile project.
  • Make a donation to our students through their classroom’s participation.
  • Support your young students in their participation in our Run-a-thon.

Join us October 16, 2010, for a fun morning of fitness activities, all for the benefit of Central’s elementary school playgrounds.
