Kick off the Halloween celebration and fall festivities by participating and raising funds for Child’s Path in our virtual Spooktacular 5K Run/Walk (3.1 miles) from October 24 – 31, made possible by Lipman Family Farms.

Your $5 entry fee includes a race day t-shirt. Participants must be registered by October 6, 2021 to guarantee a T-Shirt in your size. Remaining race t-shirts will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.  You can make an additional donation and/or create your own fundraiser right on the race platform.

Your participation and any funds raised through this event directly support Child’s Path’s mission to strengthen and enrich the lives of underserved children in Collier County through high-quality early childhood education. Nearly 75% of our enrolled children are from low-income working families and receive tuition assistance to attend our programs.   

The whole family can join in on the fun. The 3.1 mile walk/run can be completed anywhere and on your own time. It can be broken down over several days or completed all at once as long as you finish before the stroke of midnight on Halloween, October 31.  Looking for an alternative location beyond your neighborhood to complete your 5K?  Here are some suggestions:

We would also like to acknowledge our supporting sponsors: CarMax Foundation and Kristen Weardon.
