The Thousand Islands Land Trust and Hearts for Youth, Inc. is expanding our annual 5K Family Fun Run to engage the youth of Alexandria Bay and the Thousand Islands region. As an environmental organization, we value the positive impact that getting outside can have on children and families. Our event features a 5K walk or run along TILT’s Otter Creek Preserve and Nature Trail, passing golden-winged warbler habitat, wading great blue herons, croaking frogs, and beautiful fall foliage. New this year, the run will end with a picnic in celebration of wellness and community. Local vendors and organizations will display health and wellness information, engage children with activities and demonstrations, and interact with attendees, as we serve up a delicious barbeque lunch. All proceeds for this event support the health of the 1000 Islands region and its youth.
$10 pre-registration, $15 day of event (Kids under 12 are free!) There will be prizes for 1st place adult female and male, and 1st place child female and male.
Pre-registration closes at 4:45 on Friday, September 20. Same day registration will be available at the event on Saturday, September 21.
