About The Event
Kids Run for Kids is a run (not a race) to promote physical fitness among children. This is a family event for children, parents, grandparents, guardians, and siblings. Pre and post run activities include miniature golf, lawn games, and literacy games with prizes. We will have the Ames Public Library Bookmobile on site as well as a Police Patrol Car, a Fire Truck, and an Ambulance. A fun-filled family morning for all ages. The event is designed for kids 12 days old through 12 years old and their family members. As this is a fun run, the event is not timed, and results are not tracked.
