The Lakeland Area Kiwanis Club announces they are again hosting “Get Your K’s On Run,” a 1k, 5k, and 10k this year April 26, 1 p.m., at the Minocqua park complex on Hwy. 70 West.
The proceeds from this event will again support Kiwanis autism projects at a local level here in the Lakeland area.
Last year on April 27, 2013, the club raised more than $4,000 at the event.
In addition to other area donations, the club provided 13 iPads to children with autism right here in the Lakeland area.
This is a fun event that generates a lot of positive support and enthusiasm. One-hundred-fifty runners/walkers, 30 volunteers and 35 sponsors helped the club to make these iPads a reality for the 13 students in North Lakeland, Lakeland Union High School, Arbor Vitae-Woodruff, Minocqua-Hazelhurst-Lake Tomahawk, Lac du Flambeau and Eagle River schools.
The Lakeland Area Kiwanis Club recognizes those who participated in last year’s event as volunteers, sponsors, spectators and participants.
Again this year, you can help the club reach its goal by participating as a runner or walker; by volunteering your time on the day of the event, or by being a contributing sponsor to the Lakeland Area Kiwanis Club’s “Get Your K’s On Run.”
Club members are again anticipating a large turnout of runners to support this project. The goal for this year is to have 200 runners.
Consider being runner/walker for this event.
