Charity Details: Event proceeds will be given to the Neighbourhood Charitable Alliance and the Kingsville Historical Park Museum – both of which are an excellent fit.
$10 from each 5k registration fee ($5 from 12 yrs and under) goes directly to support our charities. Each registration helps us provide more dollars to those two very worthy local charities.
