The Mill Creek Parks & Recreation Department and Run26 held the 5th annual Kids Fun Run on Saturday, August 9, 2014, at Heatherwood Middle School track and field. 

This run had the largest attendance yet with 224 kids participating, ages ranged from 3 – 12 years old. 

From each registration fee, $5 was donated to the American Red Cross to help families in Snohomish County for disaster relief.

This year the American Red Cross will receive $1,105 from the run. 

The event was made possible due to the generous support from sponsors and numerous volunteers from Jackson High School – Track Team, Cheerleaders, Canyon Creek Church volunteers and the Youth Advisory Board Members. 

Fire District 7 attended the event to help cheer on the runners.

Kristen Froseth, Recreation Assistant did a phenomenal job organizing the event.

The responses from participants, parents  and sponsors have been extremely positive.  We look forward to a successful Kids Fun Run again next year!
