Beech Brook will host its 12th Annual 5K Race & Family Fun Run on Sunday, October 23, at the Orange City Schools Campus (32000 Chagrin Blvd., Pepper Pike). The event begins at 9 a.m.

All proceeds will benefit Beech Brook’s programs for Northeast Ohio’s most vulnerable children and families.

Participants can join the timed 5K race or the one-mile course for walkers or casual runners. This family-friendly event is geared to all ages with face painting, a balloon twister, a “Kid Zone” area with crafts, a costume contest – for children and adults alike – and more.

The cost is $20 if registered by October 21 (register by October 12 to be guaranteed a shirt); $25 on race day. Free for kids ages three and under. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.

New this year, participants can fundraise from family, friends, and co-workers to help support Beech Brook's programs dedicated to helping children and families thrive.

In addition, Beech Brook Foster Care families will be welcomed as our special guests to celebrate the support and care they provide children in our community. Currently, 60 children live with Beech Brook Foster Care Families and 23 of these children were placed in the past year. We want to honor these families for opening their homes and providing stability and support for these vulnerable children in their time of need.
