Raising funds for the Family Care Network to continue to provide family based treatment programs for kids.
I'm excited to run the Miracle Miles for Kids again this year! I really enjoyed the run last year and so glad it went to a good cause!
The Family Care Network’s 9th annual Miracle Miles for Kids Walk/Run will take place on May 12th, 2012. The 10k (6.2 miles) race course runs along the water’s edge from Morro Rock to the Cayucos Pier, one of the most beautiful stretches of beach in California.
When participants cross the finish line, they will be treated to a post-race party with live music, lunch, a diverse vendor fair, children’s activities and an award ceremony. Additionally, every walker/runner will receive a goody bag filled with fun items and a 2012 commemorative Miracle Miles t-shirt! This event has something for everyone—from the serious athlete trying to beat their best personal time to moms and dads looking for something fun the whole family can enjoy.
The race begins at 8:30 am and the post-race celebration runs from 9:00am-12:00pm. All are welcome to participate in one or both portions of this exciting event!
