Cubs on the Run 5K kicks off spring

Written by 

The family-friendly Cubs on the Run 5K will be held on Saturday, March 23, at Meadowbrook Elementary School in Canton, with a fun run starting at 8:30 a.m. and a 5K at 9 a.m.

The Meadowbrook Cubs on the Run 5K and fun run was created to help solve the growing problem of childhood obesity. The event helps raise money for physical activity programs at the school. One year the proceeds went toward a nine-hole disc golf course on campus.

More than 75 students have been preparing for the run through the Cubs in Training program, a 30-minute afterschool program that gets kids physically active and gives them the sense of accomplishment of running a 5K.

There will be a health fair in the gym from 7:30 to 11 a.m. to share ways families can be physically active. There will also be several local health care providers with booths.  

The Fun Run is $5 for kids under 12 or $10 for 12 and over. The 5K is $20. Registration starts at 7:30 a.m. or from 3 to 5 p.m. Friday afternoon.

    art theplaceMonday is the new Saturday. Heading down Frazier Street in Waynesville to BearWaters Brewing Company, one can barely find a place to park on a typical Monday evening. For the last couple of months, the location has played host to a weekly open mic event called the Spontaneous CombustJam.
