Join us for the seventh annual Playworks Run for Recessa family friendly 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run on Saturday, May 21st. The Run for Recess offers opportunities for the whole family to get involved at Franklin Park's world-famous cross country course adjacent to the zoo! All participants will enjoy a fun family environment, a electronically timed race, and an awesome goodie bag. Awards will be presented to the top three finishers, as well as certificates for all age and gender categories. Sign up for the race today to support Playworks and get active!

This year, we have announced an exciting new partnership with Positive Tracks that will double every dollar raised by ages 23 and under through our Run for Recess. How cool is that? Answer: Very Cool!

Positive Tracks, a national youth-centric organization that helps young people get active and give back, also provides tips and tools plus Beyond the Bake Sale fundraising ideas to get your creative juices flowing! The Positive Tracks program also provides youth participants with guidance and help from Playworks' Positive Tracks Coordinator, Karleen Herbst, to help kids turn sweat into gold for Playworks Massachusetts.
