The 20th Annual Lekotek Run/Walk will take place on Saturday, August 18, 2012.  View Flyer (pdf)  View Brochure (pdf)

On August 18th, kids and families in the City of Dunwoody will be lacing up their tennis shoes to participate in the Lekotek Run -- all to benefit children with disabilities. This Dunwoody-based event, held at Georgia Perimeter College provides an opportunity to help kids and stay fit in the process. That’s a winning combination.  We hope you will consider running or even fielding a team for the event. We have course options for every fitness level -- a 4 mile run/walk and a 1-mile fun run/walk.

The four mile road race and racewalk and one mile fun run start and finish at Georgia Perimeter’s Dunwoody campus. The four mile race is a scenic route through Dunwoody and begins at 8:00am. The one mile fun run begins at 9:00 am. All participants receive a multi-colored 100% cotton long sleeve T shirt and all children receive medals. A finish line brunch and party include fun activities for the whole family.  In addition to pre-race registration at and at the Sandy Springs Phidippides store, race day registration will begin at 7 AM.  So run for a cause and help Lekotek kids make great strides.
