The Oakmont neighborhood in southwest Gainesville is hosting its first-ever slacker run on Saturday, April 4th, 2020, from 11 AM to 2 PM. The .4K fundraiser run (that’s POINT 4K, not 4K) benefits the Child Advocacy Center of Gainesville, which specializes in therapy for abused children in the local community. The center provides a safe, child-friendly space for children and their families during child abuse investigations. The mission of the center is to break the cycle of child abuse in Alachua County. By participating in this fun Slacker Run on April 4th, you are helping to support that mission in a very real and tangible way.
Because a 5K run is 3.1 miles and a .4K run is a tad less than 1/4 of a mile (.249 miles to be exact). Anyone can do it - and get a T-shirt too! * (You need to register for the Oakmont run before March 14th to get the free T-shirt)
In addition to the run, there are lots of fun activities planned for the day of the event. At time of publishing, current activities include:
All proceeds from the day’s event will benefit the Child Advocacy Center. Gainesville's Oakmont neighborhood will be matching up to $2,000 in total monies raised.
The run is $20/person if you sign up by March 14th and the price increases to $25/person if you sign up after March 14th. Free T-shirts are only available to runners registering by the March 14th deadline.
There are several sponsorship levels but you must sign up by March 14th. There are limited sponsorships available at each level so depending upon when you sign up will determine if the levels are available.
