Beech Brook’s 5K Race & Family Fun Run on October 22

1-mile winner - Daniel Sweet and family

Beech Brook will host its 13th Annual 5K Race & Family Fun Run on Sunday, October 22, at the Orange City Schools Campus (32000 Chagrin Blvd., Pepper Pike).  The event begins at 9 a.m.

All proceeds will benefit Beech Brook’s programs for northeast Ohio’s most vulnerable children and families. 

Participants can join the timed 5K race or the one-mile course for walkers or casual runners.  This family-friendly event is geared to all ages with face painting, a balloon twister, a “Kid Zone” area with crafts, a costume contest – for children and adults alike – and more. 

The cost is $20 if registered by October 20 (register by October 11 to be guaranteed a shirt); $25 on race day. Free for kids ages three and under. Sponsorship opportunities are also available. 

Participants can also fundraise from family, friends, and coworkers to help support Beech Brook's programs dedicated to helping children and families thrive.

In addition, Beech Brook Foster Care families will be welcomed as special guests to celebrate the support and care they provide children in the community.  Currently, 72 children live with Beech Brook Foster Care families and 24 of these children were placed in the past year.  Beech Brook wants to honor these families for opening their homes and providing stability and support for these vulnerable children in their time of need.
