Champions for Children 5K Fun Run/Walk

  • Quiet Waters Park Annapolis MD (map)

Online Registration is now closed. Registration will be available at the Packet Pick-up Sessions as well as on-site on race day morning.


The Champions For Children 5K Race/Walk is sponsored by the advisory Board to the Anne Arundel County Department of Social Services. Our goal is to raise $25,000 for the Anne Arundel County Family Assistance Fund, which supports privately funded programs that benefit children and youth served by DSS. 100% of our net proceeds this year will benefit Harmony House, which provides a safe and comfortable setting where children and youth in foster care can visit with their families during the reunification process.

This event is a kid-friendly and stroller friendly run.
