THE LEKOTEK RUN 4 KIDS - Saturday, August 17th at Dunwoody campus of Georgia Perimeter College.

Info & Registration Here

For the past 30 years, Lekotek of Georgia has quietly gone about the business of helping children with disabilities and their families. Lekotek facilitates the inclusion of children with disabilities into their families and communities by loaning adapted toys, educational materials, computers and even iPads. These tools equalize the playing field making it possible for children with special needs to play and learn with siblings and peers. Computers and iPads are outfitted with appropriate software and applications to meet every child’s individual needs – whether the child has a visual or hearing impairment, autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, genetic disorder or any special need.

The Lekotek Run 4 Kids is gearing up for its 21st year. Its goal is to raise money for the nonprofit so additional children can benefit. The event will take place Saturday, August 17th. Both the start and finish are at the Dunwoody campus of Georgia Perimeter College. The event courses provide options for every fitness level – a four-mile road race and walk and one-mile fun run. The four mile begins at 8AM and the one mile at 9:00 AM. In addition to pre-race registration, runners can also sign up the morning of the event, beginning at 7 AM.

The race is well organized, runner friendly, with refreshments and family activities following the run. You don’t have to an athlete to participate, just someone who wants to make a difference!
