The third annual Kids Together Family Fun & Fitness Walk is set for 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday in Cary.
The walk raises money for the popular Kids Together playground at Marla Dorrel Park, which sits at 111 Thurston Dr. right off Cary Parkway. Proceeds will support the purchase of a misting station at the playground, which is a great idea.
The 1.4 mile round-trip walk is stroller and wheelchair friendly, following the Hinshaw Greenway across the U.S. 1/64 pedestrian bridge to the MacDonald Woods Park where walkers will circle back to Marla Dorrel Park. There will be lots of fun activities for kids, including a bubble station; KATAL, the Kids Together dragon mascot; and contests for the coolest shoes, snazziest wheels, largest group of walkers and funniest hat.
Registration is accepted the day of the event only. It's $15 per family or $5 per person. Refreshments will be served. And if it rains (and there's just a small chance of that right now), the rain date is from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. April 18.
I spent a little time over at the playground last week. Especially if you haven't been to Kids Together, one of the best playgrounds in the Triangle, be sure to check back here on Friday for a look around.
