Little kids get ready for the Great Popsicle Race at Dunwoody High on Saturday - bring kids socks to donate.

Great Popsicle Race
(1 lap at Dunwoody High Track)
Saturday, July 29 at 9 a.m.

Dunwoody High School will host The Great Popsicle Race on Saturday, July 29 to support the Atlanta Track Club's Kilometer Kids program.

The 3rd annual race is the brainchild of Benjamin Greenberg, a student at Dunwoody Elementary School.

"He wanted to share his love of running with his friends, and he wanted them to run a race with him and get a popsicle at the end," said Lauren Greenberg, Benjamin's mom.

Benjamin planned the route, wrote all the bib numbers and cut out the finish line.

Participants are encouraged to bring and donate a new pair of children's socks for Kilometer Kids
"We are excited about the support from the community and from neighborhood businesses. It looks to be the best year yet," Greenberg added.

All children who want to run must register.

The race course is 1 lap around the track at Dunwoody High School.
