Lace Up for the LEKOTEK RUN 4 KIDS - Saturday, August 12 @ Georgia State - Dunwoody Campus

Making a difference for children with disabilities

WHO: Lekotek, a local non-profit that helps all children succeed and learn through play. Lekotek facilitates the inclusion of children with disabilities into their families and communities by being a “play library” loaning adapted toys, educational materials, computers and iPads. 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.

WHAT: The Lekotek Run 4 Kids is gearing up for its 25th year with a scenic four-mile loop run and a one-mile fun run to raise money for the non-profit so additional children can benefit from their play library and other resources offered by the non-profit. More than 700 children and families benefited from Lekotek’s play library last year.

WHEN: Saturday, August 12 Four-mile race begins at 8:00 a.m. One-mile fun run at 9:00 a.m. *In addition to pre-race registration, runners can also sign up the morning of the event, beginning at 7:00 a.m.

WHERE: Dunwoody Campus of Georgia State University 2101 Womack Road, Dunwoody, GA 30338

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