On Your Mark, Get Set, Go!

...and they're off! Nearly 700 kids gathered together today from the age of 15 months to 15 years old to participate in the 10th Annual Kiwanis Kids Fun Run at Wilsonville High School. Each youngster involved had pulled on his/her best sneakers, running shorts and sported a Kiwanis Kids Fun Run T-shirt ready for the grand day. Excitement filled the air as kids ran their best, received a medal and of course, enjoyed lunch and refreshments provided by local sponsors.
The Kiwanis Club of Wilsonville is actively involved and strongly demonstrates the mission statement "to enhance the quality of life for children and our community". The Fun Run is one of the activities organized by the Kiwanis to benefit kids in the community. Sponsors provided services for the kids with everything from a rock climbing wall to face painting! The Club's Mascot didn't miss this event; interacting with the kids and being well-accepted!
Prepared with excercising and sensory balls for kids to enjoy gentle massage, our therapist was also ready for mom or dad with a chair massage as she and our manager manned the Elements Massage booth. This was a wonderful day for everyone involved. Each participant's self-confidence was boosted as they ran their best and crossed the finish line triumphantly!
A very special thanks to the Wilsonville Kiwanis Club for the oppoprtunity to participate in this fun-packed day for all kids!
