Wellesley Community Children’s Center’s 35th annual Fun Run & Fun Fair is this coming Saturday, March 28, from 8:30am-12pm, and everyone is welcome. Ditch the snow pants for running shorts in a fun-filled event located in the newly renovated Dorothy Towne Field House of Wellesley College’s Keohane Sports Center.
Events include races for waddlers as young as 3 years old to sprints for 12-year-olds. All racers receive a runner number as well as a participation ribbon. The fun continues with face painting, basketball, beanbag toss, nerf archery and more. Also, look out for the Lowell Spinners mascot.
Finally, don’t miss out on our raffle and silent auction. This year’s prizes feature an autographed baseball by Boston Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz, one week of Tenacre Day camp, a month membership to Fitness Club for Women, a week at an Orlando time share, wine baskets, gift certificates to local spas and jewelers, tickets to Red Sox and Lowell Spinner Baseball games and more.
The entry fee for races will be $7, with $3 for siblings and $3 for additional races. You can preregister online at http://www.wccc.wellesley.edu with a credit card. If you wish to sign up on the day of the event, please bring cash or a check. Give your child access to unlimited games and activities for $10 each or $25 a family (3 or more people).
All proceeds from this event support the Wellesley Community Children’s Center’s Early Childhood and After School Programs. For more information, call us at 781-235-7667 or visit our website at www.wccc.wellesley.edu.
