RiverEdge Park, Downtown Aurora on Broadway
(across from the train station)
Race Day Registration available at 6:00 AM - Race steps off at 8:00 AM
Why choose the 2nd 2 None Race?
Adequate nutrition is extremely important to every school-aged child's ability to develop properly, stay healthy, and learn well in school. Locally 28,000 children in school are eligible for free and reduced-price lunch during the school year. In the summer, however, this food is not available and these children are at risk of hunger and its negative consequences, including delayed development, poor health, behavioral problems, and inability to concentrate on learning tasks.
The 2nd 2 None 5K/10K Run & Walk and Kids' Dash, a collaboration between Communities In Schools (CIS) and Aurora Area Interfaith Food Pantry (AAIFP), raises funds to support the Food for Thought Program and other programs that help feed Aurora children at risk of hunger.
Step off at 8 AM from RiverEdge Park in downtown Aurora. Run through the beautiful park, along the streets of historic downtown Aurora and finish along the Fox River Trail in RiverEdge Park. Watch a clip from the race last year.
Runners compete by gender in five year age brackets. First, second and third place awards will be given for each category. Challenge categories are also available for corporate and school district teams. Each participant receives a performance tech race shirt and a 'goody' bag, with coupons and gifts from local vendors. (NOTE: Shirt size and goody bags are guaranteed only for participants who pre-register by April 15, 2015)
Join the 2nd 2 None 5K/10K Run & Walk and Kids' Dash for the exercise, fun and the opportunity to support our children. Walk, run or just cheer on the athletes. Everyone has fun!
Several levels of corporate sponsorship are available. Market your business before a crowd of 600 plus and help ensure that no child goes hungry this summer.
